Office 97 Re-Install

Have a legimate cd for office 97.  It is an upgrade version but I don't have 
the underlying (older version) software that the installer program is 
looking for.  Is there any way to "fake out" the installer program?

If you do eventually get Excel 97 installed, be sure to download and apply 
the SR1 and SR2 updates.

How can I get Dictionaries for Office XP?
I find vague references online to to an "Office XP Proofing tools" but the online stores seem to have no references to it - only Office 2003 Proofing tools. Is that compatible with Office XP?

If you can still find Office 2003 Proofing Tools online, then I would advise upgrading to Office 2003 so you could use Office 2003 Proofing Tools. You have very little chance of finding Office XP...
