Office 2003 & 2007 on same machine

I have Office 2003 running well on my machine at home. Need to learn how to use 2007 for work purposes. Is it possible to install 2007 any way on my home machine in such a way as not to interfere with the running of the 2003 version.

Thanks

Why not ask your boss ...

to provide you with a laptop with Office 2007 for one month or so? He should be glad you're willing to learn it in your own time, so a little contribution like this would be nice.

ask your IT guy to install Office 2007 in a virtual machine on your PC. That way, it's totally independent of your current installation.
