    And why would you want to have 3 versions of Office?

    i find office 2003 easy to use due to its drop downs. i haven't yet seen 2010 and wanted to install without messing up with 2003 just to try.

    What installer are you using? I've installed Office 2010 side by side on a machine with 2003. It asks to remove the previous version, but you can decline.

    Section 4.2 Run multiple versions without setup dialog of the Office Repository gives a necessary registry setting to prevent annoying setup dialogs when switching between versions.

    if by dropdowns you mean file-edit-view-etc menus, then you should try some software for giving classic look to office 2007/2010, for example UbitMenu
