you can't....you'll have to either find the disks...or contact microsoft to see if you can get replacement disk (note: you'll have to PROVE that you have a valid license of office, which is hard to do without the original packaging or a receipt showing that you bought it)

if neither of those work you'll have to buy another copy

You don't need the disc as such.
If you still have your product key you can download the trial from Microsoft's Office Online for your version of OFfice and then use your product key to activate it.
Note that if you've lost the product key, the game's over and you'd need to buy a new copy of Office.

If you have a product key, Digital River should allow you to download it . . . you may have to download a trial version, and then enter your product key to activate.

Edit:Removed number

P.S. Not sure what you do without a product key, but I think I'd start there.
