Aha... I wonder if IE2 isn't recognising the virtual hosts and is 
complaining about the domain name not matching the reverse DNS...

beo is currently hosted on evolt.org.uk's box, which, for hysterical 
reasons[1], is canonically known as acornparenting.org.

[1] Specifically, we set it up in a hurry for a beo mirror, and it 
needed a domain to itself. The one we had spare was that one (which is 
one of mine). At the time, we didn't forsee the need for it to become 
the main box for beo/leo/deo. We should probably fix it so that the IP 
resolves to eouk.
