Default Someone please help a desperate newbie...

Hello. I'm a brand new user, a twenty-year Windows user with one week of karmic Koala under my belt. I've managed to get almost everything running the way I want, but there's one thing I'm completely stuck on.
I need to find a way to make Internet Explorer run on my system, and I just don't understand the terminal (I'm not a software guy, I'm an airplane pilot).
I absolutely need to make IE work, and cannot figure out how to do it. Is there a tutorial somewhere that I can follow without massive programming? I haven't been able to figure out Wine yet, and I still don't understand the programming language, so please be gentle.
Lancaster, PA USA
