MS Office 2000 (msiexec error on install attempt)

MS Office 2000 (msiexec error on install attempt)

MS Office 2000 (msiexec error on install attempt)

Each time I attempt to install MS Office 2000, I receive an: MSIEXEC ERROR.

So far, I've done the following: From a 'Restart In DOS Mode' in the \windows\system directory, I renamed -
msiexec.exe --> msiexec.old
msi.dll --> msi.old
msihnd.dll --> msihnd.old
(per Microsoft's Support Page)

The PC is running Win98, 2nd release. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! ThanX!
