I don't think so because Office makes registry settings and both OS's need those settings

You could probably just Install OfficeXP from within XP to the same location, and let it overwrite the files; That way, both OS' will have the Reg entries.
The only issue you SHOULD run into is if you selected the custom install options, and specfied different options. It should still work, but anything that was already installed in 2K that wasn't specified in XP would be deleted.
