Hi :) 

It needs to take the files off the disc... so insert your office cd into cd drive, when it asks...

All the best Brett :)

Sounds like it is asking you to select the drive your installation disk is in.

Also may i make another suggestion, if you need these type of programs on your computer soon for work or school. And you can not get this Microsoft office disk to work. Try downloading Openoffice.org it is freeware. It contains all if not more of the applications that Microsoft office uses and all run nicely. If interested here is a the link.

(Copy then paste this in your address bar)

downloads.sourceforge.net/project/openofficeorg.mirror/stable/3.4.1/Apache_OpenOffice_incubating_3.4.1_Win_x86_install_en-US.exe?r=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.openoffice.org%2Fdownload%2F&ts=1358645759&use_mirr...

Just click and save the download to a folder anywhere.(make not where you saved it)navigate to where you saved it in your folders and run
Follow setup instructions.

This is the program i use and have no problems with it
