If you have an external CD drive, you should be able to use that.

However - you WILL run into issues running Office 2000 on Windows 8. It will probably mostly work, but you will have issues.

Windows Compatibility Center says no.

But it probably work, sort of. Be advised....there haven't been any security patches or upgrades on that since 2009.

If you don't want to buy a more current version of Office, LibreOffice or OpenOffice will do the job. For free.
