With the intro of SP1 for Office MS put in a level of product activation
that makes you send off some info to redmond before you can use the =
product.
From playing around, I've found you can defeat this by installing Office
2000 Gold then  upgrading, but this is time consuming. =20

I wan tt move all my Office installs up to SP2 and the newest patches =
and
plan to do a Custom install.  I suspect since I will be upgrading =
existing
Gold installs, this activation won't come into play.

But for when I reload/roll out new workstations, I'm not going to be
upgrading and I'm going to be asked to activate.  Does anyone know if =
there
is a way around these.  I have legitimate Office 2000 Pro licensing that =
has
been purchased from various vendors, but my actual copies of Office 2000 =
CDs
are from retail store copies that were here before I started working.
