Publisher >> Best way to install Pub 2002 ?

I have Pub 2000 and wish to update to Pub 2002 (it's only £50 from Amazon
whereas Publisher 2003 is £150!).
As I have many large files which I cannot risk not opening after the
install, should I install 2002 AS WELL AS 2000? Or doesn't it matter. Which
install options should I choose? Any advice appreciated please. Chris

I'd keep Publisher 2000
However, I would have got Publisher 2003 - there is an Upgrade version that
allows you to get a reduced price, and the small additional cost is well
worth it for the extra functionality that 2003 gives you.
(Note that 2003 only works on Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server
2003)

Publisher >> Best way to install Pub 2002 ? Thanks Ed, but the only reason I need to get a 'newer model' is that later
version have improved the design problem with Publisher that vastly
increaseds a files size if photos are included. i.e. my typical publisher
file sizes are 100mb (10 times what they should be). V 2002 has improved
this quite a lot I believe.

Publisher 2003 has taken another large step in the right direction on this
issue.
