    Hi all. I'm sorry if this is a silly question, but I'm very new to the Mac world.
    I just installed Office '08, and noticed that all the various programs within it, such as Word, Powerpoint, Excel, etc, are all now in my dock, yet if my wife or daughter log into their account, it is not there, so they must go in through the "applications" and click on "office" then click whichever program they want. I'm not sure why it does not come up on their dock, but it is there on mine. If I drag the program onto their dock, will it stay there, and, will it affect anything else?
    Thank you in advance.

    Yeah, that's normal, and yes, you can just drag them in. The Dock is specific to each user, and the installer only modifies the account used to install it. You can drag anything you want to the Dock, it never messes with the actual file/program.
