1. visit winehq (www.winehq.org) and read the users' comments on installing MS Office 2003

2. If (1) suggests the software will work, install WINE then install MSOffice according to the notes from winehq

3. If (1) doesn't indicate that things will work, have a look at www.codeweavers.com and read up on the compatibility with CrossoverOffice (which you have to pay for).

If you want to use MS Office 2003 - I'd suggest you run it on a Windows based machine itself. WINE has this nasty habit of crashing when you're in the middle of something important!
(Or atleast that's my experience so far!)

The more recent versions of WINE (and Crossover) are pretty stable--especially with supported apps such as Office.

i've using wine for quite a long time and found it OK, though not too good, and the latest version wont crash the way olders used to do, so you can go for it, and as far as MS office is concerned , it works pretty well , though it might run a bit slower as compared to XP, in my opinion you can give it a try without much hassle...thanks.
