    I have an old Dell laptop with Windows 98. A friend's son needs something to practice keyboarding on so I thought I would let them have this old laptop if the word processing software was loaded. I have MS Works Suite 2006 which came with Word 2002. It loaded fine but says it has to be registered or will only work 40 more times. The laptop has never been connected to the internet and I don't want to figure that out now (this boy will NOT be connecting to the net at their home so no point). Unless there's no other way to get this to work. Any suggestions? Thanks - Lynn

    You download it using a computer with an Internet connection such as the one you're on now. Then either copy it to a USB flash drive (if the old Windows 98 system supports using one) or burn it to a CD (more likely to be successful) and install it from that.
