Thanks for the response, this deals with installing it from the CD. I already copied all the files to my HD and that's where I'm getting the error message...

If all the files are on the hard drive (exact copy of the original CD), you should burn them back onto another CD if the original is not available..
Only one copy of the program can be used on the same network at the same time, unless it is a multiple users edition.
I believe that office 2003 also will not run on systems older than XP
