    Office XP Standard - preinstall question

    Wow, great work by Roger on "Office XP Installation Bugs". I just bought XP Standard and I want to install on top of Office 2000 Professional. Since I don't use Access I didn't buy the Professional this time. However I don't want to lose any of my Office 2000 stuff that doesn't come with Office XP Standard (including "small business stuff"). What should I watch out for? Or, should I uninstall Office 2000, install the upgrade for XP, and then use the CD for 2000 to validate, then re-install only the parts of 2000 I want. Any ideas? ... Michael

    SBE bits may not work with xp. best bet is to just reinstall over the current installation, using custom install and choosing what you want.

    I take it OFFICE XP only 'uninstalls' the products it's installing? That would be ok. A side question, could one install Office XP and still have Office 2000 - i.e. Have Word 2000 and Word 2002 on the same machine? ...Michael
