MS Office asks for CD every time a new user logs in

How can I get Microsoft Office to not ask for the CD every time a new user logs in?

First, if it's asking for the CD, then you probably didn't install Office XP from an administrative installation. Second, you probably didn't install Office XP per-computer. I suggest that you take a look at the Microsoft Office XP Resource Kit for more information about creating administrative installations. In order to install Office XP per-computer, log on to the computer as an administrator, and then add ALLUSERS=2 to the Setup command line.
