Office 2003 problems

I am having some problems and strange behavior from my office installation
(Outlook does not send emails..and some other issues..).

When I am trying to repair, Il get an error that says "Installation

In the log afterwards I have a lot of these: Product
{901C041D-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9}: Not installed. Cannot patch. Which
I suspect can be the root of my problems. Does any one know what "product"
the GUID is refeering to?

No I have removed the Office installation by error. Before I deleted Office,
I got the error 1603 during the update with SP2.
When I try to re-install Office from CD, the installer first shows me that
there is enough space on C:\, but in the next window it shows no space on
F:\ (!) and stops installation.

Why does it want to install on F:?

Having done a factory reset on my PC, I loaded Works in order to then upgrade
to Office SE 2003. I can now open Excel, Outlook & Powerpoint but I do not
seem to have Word. What have I done wrong?

Use the Office cd to modify the installation and ensure Word is set to 'run
from pc'

PS You dont have to install the qualifying app, you just need the meda
available to point to when the upgrade complains (you swap the cd's, verify,
