Hmmm, the software is menu driven so it should not be to hard to use it.
However, you should continue with the Base setup, that means, installing
"TrueType Arial", "DCOM98" and the IE6. If you use Cups you don't need
the last point there. Then exit the Base setup and continue with
"Install additional software" and choose "Microsoft Office 2000". Follow
the questions and let WineTools mount your Office CD if you don't
already have it mounted.
