Did you save the files to a folder? If so, you can make an image and make it bootable...if you have it installed on your system you can save them to a disk..

You cant. You need the actual .exe file from the disc.

assuming you have office enterprise edition, then there should be 4 cds. all you really need to get some real work done is the first cd, so just make a copy of that, or download this awesome program called alcohol 120% that will make a harddrive copy of the cd and will emulate a cd drive so it will read images like a real cd. Then you can burn the image later to an empty cd.
