    <sigh> Again. Firstly you CANNOT download Office 2003. Period.
    Secondly, as posted here quite often:
    a) copy the ENTIRE DVD to a thumb drive or
    b) install from a network location.

    Thirdly, a question to ask yourself - how does the Vendor provide for you to
    restore
    Windows? A Recovery DVD? A hidden partition from which you can make your own
    Recovery DVD?
    Either way you ARE going to need an external DVD drive at some point, so it
    might be an idea to think about that BEFORE you need one. They aren't
    expensive...

    It's sad when people fail to understand why something is so cheap.
