You have a couple of options, assuming you have another PC available:

1> Copy the Office CD's files to an SD(HC) card or USB flash drive and run the install from there. Make sure you turn on hidden files when you copy the files to get everything.

2> Share the CD-ROM of another computer and put the computers on the same network, either via wireless/switch/crossover cable, and install from the share.

3> Worst case scenario: contact Microsoft support. If you have a valid install key I have read that they can give you a URL to download the install package.

The full install takes about a gig of disk space, but runs quite nicely on the Mini once installed.

I installed Office Ultimate 2007 recently and I have not experienced a slowdown at all. Works beautifully on here!

I think Office '07 works great on the Mini.
