no you dont need the cd once its installed.

Copyright and Patents act says you can only install it onto one machine if you only buy one licsense though (and im sure we all worry about that one )

Default Well...

Due to rampant pirating M$ now says one cd, one machine. It has to be activated like xp does. But you can get multi user licences for it if you really need to. Gets a bit pricey. But like the guys said you can download open source software that is just as good, in some cases even better. I used Sun Office back when it was still a baby project and was very impressed. I bought the finished product for $60.00USD and have it on so many machines I lost count. I have also used Atlantis Ocean Mind and Abiword. Both totaly free. Goolge around for them and give them a try.
