It's much easier to use a PC to view mulitple copies of IE. I primarily 
use Macs but I have one test PC with an XP partition containing every 
major version of IE. They are only a few Mb's each.


These work fine to preview a webpage design -which is the whole point- 
but will crash if you do much else. Here is the explanation of how it 
is done.


I'm guessing these would also run under Virtual PC, saving a bunch of 
disk space, but VPC runs like a tortoise. $500 spent on a low end PC is 
a far better investment imo.
