    You can not install the old version of Office on your computer first. First insert CD drive. There is a drop down menu to select the proper drive. After the ownership of the old version is verified, take out the disk for the old version, put the 2003 install disk back in and away you go. But I think the 0ffice 2003 is not so good as office 2007.
