Have built a 'new' computer for daughter and have installed windows XP home (OEM). gave her my old Office 2000 CD (I'm now on Office XP). Tried to install office 2000 but about two thirds of the way through the install, message on screen asking me to install windows XP professional CD! Obviously used the home edition but 'puter refused to budge and cancelled the install! What can I have done wrong please?

Do a full format on your hard disk then reinstall Office 2000 again. XP and Office 2000 should happily co-exist.
