Question Installing Works 2001 over Works 2000?

I just bought a copy of Works Suite 2001 which I'd like to install on my computer, so I can have WORD.

Someone told me if I want to install this I should first uninstall Works that came with my computer when I bought it in 2000. I have a Compaq Presario which runs Windows ME. SHOULD I do this, and if so, HOW?

I really don't want to install ALL of the disks included in the Suite 2001 (I'd like to bypass the Encyclopedia and Streets & Trips, for instance). Is it OK to install some without all of the others.

As you can see, I'm NOT an expert when it comes to these things. Any advice would be appreciated....

You should be able to install just the components you want. I don think you need to uninstall 2000, but you may, install 2001 and see what happens, you may need to install everything, if so, just remove the programs you dont want after the install.
