Hi Peeps, thank you for the replies. I understand,
But what about the "File Settings and Transfer Wizard?" It seems to have been invented so we can take our software with us to our new machines. I understood that XP would be the last O/S that would support and get fixes for Ofc2k.
The EULA for Genuine Advantage only mentioned Office 2002 and later, so maybe it won't care about Ofc2k. Plus, One Care sneaked it on my machine last night.
Does the Transfer Wizard erase the "from" machine? Does it take the O/S with it? Doesn't every EULA allow one backup copy of the software? Because I can't get any more fixes for Ofc 2000 under Win98, I want it on on my XP machine so I can get it updated and backed up and put back, so that when the XP machine gets messed up, I still have a backup computer.
XP seems so #$%^ complicated. Does everybody use a FAT32 virtual drive to hold XP? Would a straight NTFS (sp?) be a more reliable configuration?
