Is there any way to install Office 2003 labeled "For Distribution With A New Gateway PC Only" on a non-Gateway PC? Thanks!!!

I doubt it. CD's labeled in that manner are typically sold as part of a PC bundle that includes a specific brand/model of PC.

The install pack will be looking for specific directories or registry entries or something specific to that PC.

When it doesn't find what it is looking for, the install will fail.

It's like trying to use the "Recovery CD" from a xyz branded PC bundle to install Windows XP on a different machine. It just isn't going to work.
