How to retrieve a lost Office 2000 license key

I have been asked to rebuild a machine which has MSFT Office 2000 on Win98.  Problem is that the physical license key document is not available, and I feel the need to have that information *before* repaving the machine.  Note that this was a legal installation because I rebuilt the machine once before, and the machine has since gotten hurt by various and sundry nasties.  

Troubleshooting done so far:

I've checked in the registry under the tree that contains the install and config info for Office2K, and found nothing that looks like a naked license key (like is available for the OS).

Have run the magicaljellybeans utility, and it only presents the OS key.

I've also rummaged through my office in the hopes that the physical document would turn up, but it did not.
