Getting new P.C can I put work and word 2000 on and then upgrade via the net or am I just being P.C illiterate. I am so not clued up

Assuming that you have the CDs, yes. You can then go to Microsoft Update and install any service packs for them.

VoG. Thanks for the reply it has helped me decide which P.C now. Big thanks

Just to back up VoG™'S advice, I actually installed Office 2000 on a mate's new PC on Saturday. The new PC was running Vista and it all installed and runs without any problems.

Thanks very much for that. I do still have disks. Hope that it installs as well for as it did for you. Wish me luck and thanks again
