HOW DO I REINSTALL OFFICE2000 WITH DAMAGE TO CD DISK

The only thing I can think of is to use a program such as Roxio and copy
the entire CD onto a new one. In doing so, Roxio may try to recover
files from damaged layer of the CD. There is no full proof that it will
work.

Microsoft doesn't sell CDs anymore for office 2000 but it is still worth
a try. Give them a ring in your country. Alternatively, you could buy
Office 2003 Students & Teachers version for a very competitive price.
Try to look on Amazon website.

You might as well take this opportunity to fix your keyboard as it seems
that the CAPS LOCK is stuck!

If the surface of the CD is damaged, there are methods by which it may be
"re-surfaced". Check with your local record - oops - music store. They
typically carry the devices for such things. I have successfully used the
method in the previous post as well. Making a copy of the disk seemed to do
the trick.

BTW: Have a look at item 1 at
