Default Can Office 97 be used in windows xp?

Now i have no ideas about bits of these posts but i ill say totally
*yes* you can load all excel / office versions on any windows version
if you go down, Office 2003 will not like Win95, 98, nt, but as long as
you have WinXp load a way you could load all versions i mean all even
litle old excel 4 on floppy if you had it and it will run, the trick is
to change the installations directory for each, ie when loading Office
95 make sure all directorys are ..Office95/ so office 97 will be
...office97 and so on, also be careful you must remove all existing
version from the install disk so they are totally removed [well best as
can] and load 2003, xp, 2000, 97, 95, 94, and so on, add wild cards such
as excel 4 last and in same directory way to avoid clashes and stops
much of teh sharing tnay might fight a litle but this is the cleanest
way to do so the down side is the FULL install of all takes a lot of
hard drive space but hey if it must be done.

Also each load needs a tidy of start menu as will get messy and so on,
the default will excel 2003 so be warned about backwards
