I remember seeing a tutorial on installing MS Office 2000 on Linux through Wine. But could'nt find it again, searching with the same keywords.

I do use Openoffice 2.0, but it destroys some of the alignments in the original MS-WORD file. So I thought might as well get Office installed through Wine.

Does anyone have an idea how to do it :think: Pretty sure installing wine and wine-dev packages are default steps.
