Rick,

Sad to say that Office 97 will not load on my XP Home SP2 machine. I get an
Error Message: 16 Bit windows subsystem
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not
suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose
"close" to terminate the application.

What can I do???

Go to openoffice.org, download Open Office 2.4, has it's own versions of the 3 programs you want, and it's 100% free and will even run in Vista, and probably has more features than your older office suite. I have Office XP at home, didn't even install it b/c I like Open office. And yes it reads the Microsoft format files, except for the very newest ones, though Open Office 3.0 coming in september is supposed to.

Just out of curiosity, why are you replying to a posting that's over 3 years old and archived from a newsgroup?
