[Wine] Microsoft Office 2003 Pro for several users

I'm using Windows XP clients in a local network that is connected to a central server running Debian Linux.

I'd like to switch the clients to Ubuntu, as my users use OpenOffice and Firefox mainly; however, some of them still use Office 2003/Office 2007 (especially Word and Excel).

For now I have only tinkered with Office 2003, I'll see about 2007 later.

On my server I have a directory where an administrative install of Office 2003 resides. I managed in doing the installation on a client, as root; I used /opt/wine/drive_c as my wine C: drive, so that every person logging on the client can access it.

However, when I run Word as a user (not as root), I get a message that "Office has not been installed for that user". I tried copying system.reg, user.reg and userdef.reg over to the ~/.wine of the user, but it still gives the same error.

Anybody has suggestions and (possibly :)) solutions?
