Office for Mac licensing question

I have an older Power Mac that runs Office 2001 for Mac 
on OS 9.1. I want to keep the older Mac and still use 
Office 2001 on it. I also want to get a new Mac (G4 
probably) and run Office V. X on OS 10.3. Do I need to 
purchase a full-up version of Office V. X to install on 
the new Mac or can I purchase the Office V. X upgrade 
version instead? If I can get by with an upgrade, do I 
need to install Office 2001 on the new Mac and then 
uninstall Office 2001 after the upgrade is completed 
(since Office 2001 is running another Mac)? I basically 
want to run both Macs at the same time (an older Mac with 
Office 2001 and a new Mac with Office V. X).

You will have to read the license that comes with your copy of Office X,
as Microsoft has used somewhat different language in its EULA (End User
License Agreement) depending on when and what kind of upgrade was
purchased. My upgrade license says, in essence, that I can use either or
both versions but that they are both covered by the same license, so
that I cannot sell or give away one version without including the other
version in the transfer. 

It should also be noted that an Office X license allows you to install a
second copy on a portable machine, so long as the second copy is for
your exclusive personal use. Many people report that a second copy will
not launch if it detects another copy with the same serial number
running on the local network, but that has not been my experience.
AFAIK, Office 2001 does not do any such snooping.

Thanks. It appears that since both my wife and I will be 
using both the old and new Macs, the legal thing to do is 
purchase a full-up version and install it on the new Mac. 
Eventually, we each plan to have an iBook for personal 
use and will need two copies of Office.

Using 2 versions of Mac Office 2004 (Japanese and English). How do I set the default for which version my machine uses to open office files?
I using 2 versions of Mac Office 2004 (Japanese and English). How do I set the default for which version my machine uses to open office files?

But since that is not the case, I have had to purchase install the English version of Office 2004 (at great expense both monetarily and memory wise).
