can i download microsoft office 2003 onto a jump drive instead of placing it on the c drive? How?

I made an attempt at this, during setup i changed the drive from c to g, the suite ended up on both drives but after i deleted it from the c drive the copy on the g (jump) drive no longer worked

    You can't do this. MS Word, along with most other Windows programs stores information about the installation in the Windows registry. Since the registry has to be located on the C drive, you can't use the flash drive to move Word to different computers. If, however, your flash drive has U3 on it or you install PortableApps, you can install a movable version of OpenOffice, Sun Microsystem's competitor to MS Office that is fully compatible with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files.
