I need to run a vm just for office.

Which os and version of office would give me the smallest foot print.

It also needs to support ms search, not sure if office 2003 supports it.

I'm thinking ws 2003 w office 2k7

Which office document types and which office document versions do you need to support ?

Also, if any of those require viewing only, you could consider the free microsoft office viewers - tiny footprint.

For search - Google desktop might be worth considering. It is faster and more useful.
