    I'm still new to the Mac world but I used to install Office on my old, drive-less PC all the time.

    Would I be able to do the same and copy iWork and/or Office 2008 from disc to a USB HD drive (Western Digital)? I have access to a Mac w/drive for awhile but, once my new Air arrives, I won't (so no remote disc option for me). These are the only 2 programs I will ever need to install (from disc) so I'd prefer not to buy the portable super drive.

    Thanks.

    It's the same with iWork. Download the trial then enter your serial number. I backup all my physical media onto an external drive to save getting scratched or destroyed. Installs also seem quicker, though that may be BS.

    You can install from a USB or any other medium. The installers for iWork and Office2k8 do not perform a medium check.
