    I have been having this problem, even on a new intallation of an '98 os. I can install Office 2000 no problem, but when I attempt to install the Office sr1a update I get this error message about contacting Microsoft.
    " Microsoft Office 2000 sr-1 Update did not complete successfully. For assistance, contact Microsoft Technical Support.*
