Hi. I recently bought a new computer that has MS Windows XP Home. I tried to install a copy of MS Office 2000 Word and Excel, and received the following: "Insert your Windows XP Professional Pack 2 CD now". I don't understand why it won't load; I installed Word/Excel on my old computer with Windows EP and had no problem. Must I buy XP Professional to install MS Office 2000 on Windows XP Home? Everyone I've talked to says "No, it should work". But it doesn't. Please help!
