I'm not aware of any successful Office XP instals under Linux. I have read of successful installs of Office 2000 under Wine. I've never done this though.

The easy option is to install the latest crossover office which will handle office XP.

The not so easy option is to try with wine

but yes it is possible

I've only ever used crossover office on Xandros 1.1 and installed MS office 2000 but it worked OK and that was a year or two ago.

Crossover has a friendly gui which makes the process quite easy

however crossover isn't a freebie but wine is

Why don't you install openoffice instead ?
