Here's an easy program that will allow you to change OEM info, logo, and support info.

Or, if you know someone who has Office XP, you may legally copy, or use those CD's install XP on your system--using your CD key. If your CD key has already been used to install Office XP on another computer, you'll likely have to call Microsoft to activate it.
