What's the best way to run multiple versions of Internet Explorer on the same computer?

I'd like to be able to run Internet Explorer 6, 7 & 8 on the same computer for testing a websites functionality and design in the various browsers. What is the best way to go about doing this on a Windows computer.

I just downloaded Tredsoft's IE program that runs multiple versions of Internet Explorer on your PC. You can choose to install Internet Explorer versions: 3.0, 4.01, 5.01, 5.5, and 6.0 during installation. I just wanted to see what IE 5.5 and 6.0 looked like for the most part, since a lot of people still use IE 6.0 as their main browser, and because I've always run into problems relating to CSS / HTML with sites in Internet Explorer 6.0.

At any rate, the Tredsoft program seems to be a quick and easy way to see what your sites look like in IE 6.0 and below. Go here to get the program: http://tredosoft.com/Multiple_IE

For checking sites out in IE 7.0 and 8.0, I use Internet Explorer 8.0 and then just hit the Compatibility View mode button to see what sites look like in IE 7.0.
