I found this on another forum. I know you've got Office XP, but it could help. (The file is apparently hidden on the disc).

"Just a note for anyone else trying to solve this problem for Office 2003 on Windows XP -- I occasionally play around with the services on my machine, disabling those that seem to be sucking up memory for no particular good reason. I was also experiencing the SKU011.CAB problem: I couldn't start Excel, and when it prompted me for the Office installation disc, it wasn't able to find the file, even though I could locate it myself in Windows Explorer. Turns out that one of those services I stopped, called "Office Source Engine", must have been the cause. I just quit out of all my installation/repair dialogs to get back to the desktop, started that service, and was instantly able to open Excel with no problems."

This problem is also common to Office 2003. Here is Microsoft's workaround

try this from another forum on net

Go into Registry Editor (Start, Run, "regedit"). Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, Software, Microsoft, Office, 11.0, Delivery. There should be only 1 directory under Delivery, which is your DownloadCode (mine was 90000409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9). Select that directory. On the right side of the screen, right-click on CDCache. Change the value to 0. This worked for him, but be very careful anytime you edit the system registry.

Did you delete the office setup files when you finished the initial installation?
