No workaround and nor should there be. I don't think this is the place to be asking for hacks. If I have mis-understood your intentions, please pardon me and respond with more detail. For example, if you mean a way around doing the internet based activation, then yes, you can do by phone or fax if I am not mistaken.

I think you'll need to utilize an Enterprise version of Project 2003. This does not require the individual activation of installs. This may not help, due to the pricing, but volume licensing, in a lot of these new products, bypasses the individual actiavation requirement. Here is an article that explains it as it pertains to Project. Hope it helps.
