    Nicholas does, of course, mean Word 2002. Word 2000 is no longer available
    retail.

    You're trying to use an upgrade Office CD. That requires that you
    have a previous version, either installed or on a CD to insert as
    proof of ownership.

    Sorry, but you'll need to buy a non-upgrade copy.

    By "xp word prossesor," I assume you mean WordPad. I don't blame
    you! WordPad is not a real word processor at all--just a
    glorified text editor, suitable only the simplest of jobs.

    Rob, the Office CD you have is an upgrade. It wants to see the old
    version of Office that was used to qualify for the upgrade price.

    During the installation, read the screens carefully. It's possible this
    setup program will allow you to temporarily insert the older Office CD
    into the CDrom drive. If it allows you to do that, it will then tell you
    to reinsert the Office 97 CD and will finish the installation.

    NOTE: You may want to install the qualifying product first. Then install
    Office 97 to a different folder. When finished, uninstall the qualifying
    product. As long as that qualifying product will install to WinXP, that
    would work too.

    I think you have an office 97 upgrade version and you need something like
    WP5 (even dos) or a prior version of office product. Unless you can mabey
    copy the directory from your old drive to a temp directory on your new
    computer and it may install. I think it just looks for like word.exe. or
    excel.exe so you may just need to put them on your new machine long enought
    to install.
