I couldn't install MS Office XP

I downloaded CrossOver Mac and started the installation of MS Office XP.  I selected Office XP from the list of programs.  I chose to install it in a new bottle named "Microsoft Office XP."  The CrossOver Software Installed window opened.  It read as follows:

"Please wait while CrossOver launches the requested installer."  In the box was "Preparing to install" and "Installing Microsoft Office XP."

An hour and 40 minutes later, nothing had changed.  I tried to force the installation.  Crossover simulated a Windows reboot and started to update or reinstall the desktop manager.  Eventually, I was told that the installation had failed.

Can anyone tell me what went wrong and what I might do, if anything, to install Office XP successfully?

Are you installing from a CD, mounted ISO, folder or ...?
