Netbook and Works/Word

  Shine77 18:13 04 Sep 2008

Hi, hope someone can help me out.

My boyfriend is considering buying an Advent 4211 but is unsure how easy it will be to put Works onto it, specifically Word 2000.

He's heard that he can put it on using a memory stick but doesn't know how easy or otherwise this would be for someone with not much computing knowledge!

Is this the type of thing you need someone with know-how to do for you, or is it something a novice can do as it should go easily and not cause any problems?

Thanks in advance for any help here!

It may well already include Works when he buys it - but I should point out that Word 2000 is not part of Works but of Microsoft Office. But it does include a word processor which is very similar to Word.

Hi, thanks for the very quick response! And thanks for pointing out the Works/Office confusion - that's a mistake on my part that I often seem to make!

Yes, you're right. He's got Office and wants to install Word 2000 on the Advent. Sorry for the confusion!
