Running Windows Office XP on Win 98 OS

I know this may be a dumb question but will I be able to install Office XP on a machine running Windows 98 or will it be incompatible?

Office XP requires the NT base - win2k or xp.

Yes you can - i did until i upgraded to Windows XP. Its Office 2003 that needs XP or higher...

Office XP runs on Windows 98 or XP. Office 2003 is Windows XP only.

One final thing....
Does this mean I can save a Powerpoint from Office XP to disc on a Win 98 OS mchine, and open it OK on a machine with a different OS?
