multiple IE versions on the same machine ?!

I am working these days to reproduce an error which seems to appear only on IE 5.0 and some versions of IE 5.5 which are using Scripting Engines older than version 5.6 (is the JS error “Error: Unexpected Quantifier” ring a bell ? ).
We do have an old machine which was kept only for this specific purpose, of testing against 5.5.

And I get the idea of searching if somebody ever tried to run multiple versions of IE on the same machine. Guess what, they actually managed to get this going. How ? Well, read the following article:

http://labs.insert-title.com/labs/Multiple-IEs-in-Windows_article795.aspx which I found thanks to one of my preffered sites,http://www.quirksmode.org/browsers/multipleie.html
And to cut the chase, this is the link to the packed versions of IE, ready to unzip and run on the same machines: http://browsers.evolt.org/?/ie/32bit/standalone

I will soon give it a try, hopefully this will work ... Anyway, this is another way thank to the effort taken to put this is place. IE sucks :)
