Reinstalling Office 2000 to an XP Home laptop

I successfully reinstalled Office 2000 from my old PC to a new XP Home laptop. However, whenever I try to register it (it only gives me 50 tries before I am forced to register), I get a message that the application has been installed in another computer.

Is there a way to work around this? Does it mean I cannot re-install my old software to a new computer? Thanks for any help in advance!

You've already registered the software once. If you're moving the license from one PC to another, you might need to call Microsoft to get a new license key.
