    We have two computers with it installed on already, but one of them is dying
    and I want to install it on a new computer. Is it okay to do this?

    What does the EULA say?
    Generally a retail version can be installed on 2 working devices

    To my knowledge all MS Office Basic Edition 2003 installations are OEM,
    this means that the license is valid for the first computer it is
    installed on. It may not be "moved" to another machine as the license is
    no longer valid. You should look at the license to see if I am wrong and
    it is not OEM.

    Read my reply in this newsgroup message thread - Migrating to new computer

    It contains references in a license terms about reassign and other
    important issues - I use Office 2007 references, but basically the same
    applies -

    Find your license terms for office basic edition 2003 - identify the kind
    of license you have - generally - Retail, OEM, or Media Less and then read
    the specific section of the license terms for what you own.
