[Wine] Moving Microsoft Office from XP to Wine

I bought a used WindowsXP PC that has Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 installed. I would like to move the software to my Wine environment on my Fedora11 desktop before I wipe the Windows disk and install Linux. It did not come with any distribution media.
I know the wiki (http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#head-497f1a295d53dd3444f211df2b13312c7767afa2) says, you have to install them in Wine..., but it also says some applications can be copied if you don't mind tinkering.
I intend to tinker. But I'm hoping someone has done this before and can give me a heads-up of any non-obvious files that will need to be copied, and especially of any registry entries that will need to be transported.
Does anyone have any tips?
