Indeed - I have the full Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 all on one computer (with the exception of Outlook)

Yes you can do this.  Any version from 2007 and after can be installed together with a previous installation of Office.  As roybridge states, only Outlook can not be installed in multiple versions.  You just have to be careful in the order of the installation (start from the earlier versions).

There is an extensive KB article on microsoft about this:

<< Any version from 2007 and after can be installed together with a previous installation of Office. >>

 Actually, youc an do it with any of the versions.  I currently have A97, A2000, A2002, A2003, A2007, A2010, and A2013 all on one machine.

Note however that with A2003 and up, when you launch a different version, it will "re-register" itself as the default version.

The main trick is to install them in order and install them in seperate directories.

For example, A2000 I put in C:\Program Files\O2000
