None of the Microsoft groups had the answer; but, a search in alt.comp.freeware
found the legitimate way to download, for free, both Microsoft Office
2007 Home and Student (from microsoft's web site) and Microsoft Office

In addition, the Outlook guys didn't tell me that 2007 didn't contain
Outlook; the freeware guys did.
So, while it may be the wrong group, the freeware group rocks!
