[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?
