Install scripts are missing.

I've downloaded the *.deb file and installed it on my Ubuntu Natty box. Everything seems to run appropriately, however I cannot install any software as the scripts are missing. Also, I cannot install the MS fonts, as I am behind a firewall (proxy) which will automatically deny the *.exe files.
When I try to install say, IE7, it warns me that the script has not been verified, and asks me to check over the script and confirm. The script is empty (does not exist) and thus when I check "Agree' and 'Next', nothing happens.

I was able to install MS Office by finding the appropriate script on this site (int the repository) and running it as a local script. However, IE7 requires numerous other scripts (POL_Install_msls31 and POL_Install_msxml3, for example) and I do not wish to download these as the need pops up and figure out where they need to be placed in the file system for PoL to find them. Why are these scripts not packages with the *.deb, or why do I not have them? Is there a simple way to download the entire script repository and put them where they need to be? Thanks!

Because they are updated very very very often (sometimes, every 10 minutes)

However, you can download PlayOnLinux Server and install it on your computer :

You will also need this (updated every day)
