I can only try the demo and it works on Konqueror 3.1.4+.  But, it won't work with 
Mozilla.  I am having other Mozilla problems and it might be something in RedHat.

Now, if the demo works for me and it doesn't work for you there may be hope. :-)

I presume that you are a subscriber, so I would bring the fact that it doesn't work to 
their attention.

If you want to use Linux, you can purchase CrossOver Office which will run IE 5.5.  The 
demo works with that.  It is also possible to install IE 5.5 your self with WINE.
