Yes to both. I've done it myself.

Bit of advice - best not to post your email address on the forum. Even here there can be some very strange people. We can get in touch if necessary by the envelope beside your name.

Office 97 will certainly run on XP, and is upgradable to 2002 - check at click here

You may need to check the licence conditions - from memory, you could install Office to two separate PCs (e.g. laptop and desktop) provided that you did not use them at the same time.

Note: there is no need to load Office 97. All you have to do is to go direct to loading Office 2002 and at some point in the installation it will ask you to insert the qualifying software. Put your 97 disk in. It will think about it for a moment or two and carry on loading.

It's best to do it this way then you won't have loads of redundant junk left behind from your old version.
