Running msoffice2000 as user


I have managed to install crossover office and running msoffice 2000. But mk 8.2 only allow me to run under root. Is there anyway that i can make it run under user instead of root. How to set the permission for using the program?

Thanks.

just type each line, followed by an "enter". type the word "man" followed by the word for a command (eg, "chown") to read the manual page for the command. the manual page lists all the options and usage for a command.

the commands listed above let you change the permissions, ownership, etc. on files and directories - who may read, write, and execute them.

as for m$office - sorry, can't help.
