    Running Office 2003 in Linux under WINE

    I think this has been done before. Can someone help? I just need to know howto do this and just be able to tell people that it is possible.

    Please don't say that OpenOffice is better etc. This is just a can this be done question ?

    Thanks again.

    I would imagine if you install the usual DCOM98, Internet Explorer and MSI you will get it running, as apart from these three components making most wine installs work (at least work better), these are definitely required for an Office install in Windows. Check ouut Frank's Corner to get sorted, and don't forget to get his preconfigured wine file.
