    Triple boot Office (Several versions)

    I have Win 98 and Office 97 installed on C drive.
    I have Win 2000 and Office 2000 installed on F drive.

    I am planning on installing another Win 2000 partition, likely on the G drive. Then I can install Office 2002 Developer Edition Upgrade under that Win 2000 system.

    What is necessary for the Office 2002 Upgrade to install?

    Do I first have to first install Office 2000 on the G drive?

    Or, will the installation procedure nose around and find the other installations of Office on the C (Office 97) and F (Office 2000)?

    Or, will I have to insert the Office 2000 CD-ROM?

    Or, Insert the Office 97 Small Business Edition (OEM) CD-ROM?

    Prior to installing Office 2002, I'll install IE 5.5 and IE 5.5 SP2.

    As long as I understand, you are planning to install third bootable partition with Win2k and Office XP Developer on it.
    First of all, create third partition (or make a room for it)
    Then make sure, it didn't interrupt boot process on your second partition (Win2k). If so, edit your boot.ini file on C: root.
    Then insert your Win2k installation disk and install operating system on your new partition or unallocated space. After installation, check boot process for all three partitions. You probably will need to edit boot.ini file to distinguish your Win2k partitions (both would have "Windows 2000 Professional" on boot menu).
    Apply SP2, IE5.5sr2 and other security patches for Win2k.
    Install Office 2k Standard or Professional (whatever you have on your FULL installation CD). Make sure to install it on your new partition (presumably G: ).
    Install Office XP Developer Upgrade.
    Apply security patches for Office XP.

    By the way, Developer Upgrade isn't the best solution, because every time you'll want to add component for your configuration it will prompt you to insert Full installation CD, then Upgrade CD. I agree, it's cheaper, but for serious developer job it's better to have full version.

    Thanx, that's what I was planning on doing.

    I have not had a problem adding components with Office 2000 Developer Edition. Has this changed for Office 2002 DEveloper Edition?

    No, it was not. What I was talking about, was remote possibility only.
