Default Microsoft Works to Office 2000 to Office 2007 Upgrade

I just got a new PC with Microsoft Works (9?). I have an Office 2000 CD
w/product key and an Office 2007 Upgrade w/product key. I want to end up with
Office 2007 on this new PC. Specifically, do I have to uninstall Microsoft
Works, then install Office 2000, then upgrade to Office 2007. Any helpful
hints on how to procede would be greatly appreciated.

Works is not an Office Suite product. You do not have to uninstall it, but
as a practical matter I see no reason to keep it becaused everything it does
is also done by the Office Suite.

Works is not an accepted bed from which to install the Office Upgrade.

You can install Office '07 until it says it can't find the version from
which it can base the Upgrade on, then you put the Office '00 CD into the
tray, then return to the Office '07 CD and complete the install.

Works is a qualifying app for Office Upgrades? Really?

I have Works as a free version that came on a MSoft Money CD. Works is not
an Office Suite application.

2000-2007 Microsoft Office program or suite; any Microsoft Office XP suite
except Office XP Student and Teacher.
