    I didn't write this, found it on some forum, just make sure you copy all the files on your office xp corp version disk to your hard drive. good luck!

    SP1 Update:

    firstly it will be easier to just uninstall your current office xp
    installation.

    Ok run this in the command box (start/run)
    D:\setup /a
    this will copy the stuff from the office cd to the hard disk
    this creates a administration installation point on your HD (c:\office)

    then download the service pack from this place (40megs)
    http://download.microsoft.com/download/officexpstandard/sp/oxpsp1/w98nt42kme
    xp/en-us/oxpsp1a.exe

    open the exe and extract the to files to c:\config.msi
    create a "temp" dir in C drive

    then run these 2 commands in the run box again (separately 1 after the
    other)

    msiexec /p C:\Config.Msi\MAINSP1_Admin.msp /a C:\Office\PROPLUS.MSI
    SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb /L* c:\temp\1.log

    msiexec /p C:\Config.Msi\OWC10SP1_Admin.msp /a C:\Office\OWC10.MSI
    SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb /L* c:\temp\2.log

    it will seem like a quick operation but open the log files created to see if
    the msi patch updates were successful (right at the end)

    then reinstall office xp from the c:\office location like normal

    and now you have a office XP installation which is fully updated

    update: this works for enterprise/corporate version (possibly only)
