recently i installed an original copy of msoffice 2007 on my netbook
without dvdreader copying the whole dvd in a usb key. then installed
with the help of PlayOnLinux. everything i tried worked perfectly,just
the splash windows took some time to disappear the first time. it
worked better on ubuntu natty with wine than on win7.
