The installation of office 2003 works just fine ( with lot of fixme and few err messages) on wine 0.9.58 (in Debian etch 2.6.18). Word seems to do fine as well (so far) even though dimesio mentioned in other thread (Gtk warning made xwine exit with fatal error (http://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?t=797&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=)) that :

As for SP3, it is said in the Windows XP Service Pack 3 Overview (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=68c48dad-bc34-40be-8d85-6bb4f56f5110&displaylang=en#QuickInfoContainer) :This update includes a small number of new functionalities, which do not significantly change customers’ experience with the operating system. In fact, Service Packs are supposed to enhance Windows performance. They do not add functionalities to other programs. So i do not see the point of installing SP3 on wine.
