Installing Office 98 on the MAC is easy as (Apple) pie. After dragging the folders to your hard disk, the programs starts a first run installation when you open an Office programme. If this process aborts with a disk error code, update your drive setup.
Run ‘Drive Setup 1.7.3’
select: Update Driver
reboot your system
Additional dictionaries and spell checkers need to be installed manually (Value Pack option). An installer for the Value Pack offers you a selection list.
Check the Microsoft web site (download area) for the latest updates. The Microsoft Office Manager (aka MOM) is available for download and can be easily added.
