Hello everyone,

I've just discovered this wonderful software thanks to a tutorial i've read on the web explaining how to use MS Office on Linux.
Using Office 2007 on Linux would be perfect for me so it's kind of a dream come true.
Unfortunately the installation doesn't work so far for me :

Everything is going right, i've selected the CD for installation and PlayonLinux downloads installs various things, until it reaches the steps when it's supposed to install Internet Explorer 6 :

"Playonlinux is downloading and installing Internet Explorer 6

Please be patient ca. 12 MB is being downloaded"

The installation process doesn't get any further even if i wait 1 hour !!!
I know that my connection is not the problem here cause it CAN'T be that slow, so i would like to know if other persons have had this same problem and how did they solve it ?

Other informations about my PC :

I've got Ubuntu Lucid Lynx and use Gnome.

Thanks a lot for your help !!!
