I tried to install Microsoft Office on my Ubuntu Jaunty netbook using PlayOnLinux, but only succeeded at installing Wine. What other steps can I take to complete my installation?

I am new to Linux, but tried to follow the terminal commands listed for Ubuntu Jaunty.

    Hi

    For some odd reason, Office 2007 will not run on a version of Wine above 1.1.14. For that reason, if you currently have Wine installed, uninstall it by follow these steps:

    CrossOver Linux is able to run many Windows software, but CodeWeavers will offer its assistance on many applications:
