Installing IE5 for Design Testing

Joe Maddalone discovered this method of getting multiple versions of IE installed under Windows XP. Matt Haughey and Dave Shea also picked up on it; diligent web designers all over rejoice.

My contribution is for the lazy web developers: instead of downloading the 90 megabyte IE5.5 installer, extracting 10 of the .CABs, and then deleting unnecessary files, just grab this one ZIP (offsite link, 3.25MB).

If you want to mirror the file somewhere, feel free; leave a comment and I’ll link to you.

Update: Someone else had the same idea, and we’ve got another mirror available.
