    How to install if No CD-Drive available

    I am looking to purchase a new Netbook. It seems to not have CD drive even though there are plenty of USB ports. So, can anyone tell me if I dont plan to purchase an external drive then how will I install MS Office? Incase, I download it form the net, what would be the size of the downloaded file? Will I be able to copy the info from the CD onto an external Hard drive and then from there installed it to the Netbook? Thanks

    Well, you can easily try to install it through network or copy the CD to a USB device and use the usb drive to install it.

    Yeah, the other method of installing it from the USB or External drive would be fine. You will just need to copt the entire contents of the CD/DVD into a folder on the hard drive and then install it from there. I have done it many times with all version of Office. Hope this helps.
