Is it possible to install MS Office ISO File from a flash drive?

Found 8th Sep 2009
I downloaded MS Office 2003 as an ISO file from the Microsoft Technet Offer a while back and installed it on my PC by burning it to a disc then installing as per. However, I'd like to install it on an Acer Aspire One with XP, but the problem is, the AAO doesn't have an optical drive. Is there a way I can install it on the AAO without having to buy an external USB optical drive?

should do, it will take longer though.
yes, just download software that can read iso files - eg cd daemon.
(There are literally hundreds of them, just take your pick)
You can install a virtual drive on your computer.

Free one here (that I use) slysoft.com/en/…tml

Once installed right click and click on Virtual Clone Drive and select Mount - browse for iso and it will mount it as if you'd put it into a dvd-rom etc drive.

Ahh, I never realised that that was possible, I'll defo check it out. Do you think it also works with linux?
