Thanks for your suggestions Ivan..

Tried it but that didn't help.. same error...

Tried this and this seemed like it might work but Excel setup wants 
to install System components (says it needs some web browsing stuff) 
or so and when it tries to do that off the CD, it complains that it 
can't find a file called OSP1.CAB on the CD.. I tried two different 
Office XP CDs and neither of them have this file.. moreover, I 
installed Office on my windows partition just fine (of course, then 
the Office installer didn't have to install the System components).. 
  also tried installing IE6 on fake_windows but that quit saying the 
installation is incomplete and basically didn't install anything..

Any other tips?
