Will Office 97 run OK on Windows XP Home?

I have a new PC arriving soon with Windows XP Home. Will I be able to run my existing Office 97 Pro on this OS? If so, will I have to re-install the Office 97 Service Pack(s) for Y2K compatibility etc?

Thanks to all. Sounds as if it'll be OK provided I install all the updates.
