You can still install abi word. Download the binary package for your distribution and then install it if you can not connect your computer to internet and use package manager.

I do not know what package manager your distribution has ( assuming that you are on tinycore, as you said in your last post). But it should be there in the repositories that you can install.
And if there is no package management, you can still compile it from source. The tarball is around 9megs.

Just to point out that antiX is not Mepis/ubuntu, but Mepis/Debian Testing.
