The Office 2010 installer weighs around 700 MB in size but you need around 3 GB of free space on your hard drive for the installation.
You can either upgrade your current version of Microsoft Office to Office 2010 Beta or select the Customize option during installation and set your current version of Microsoft Office to coexist with Office 2010 Beta.
All products require online activation after installation. In case of Office 2010, you can enter the serial number inside Word 2010 and it will automatically activate all the other Office programs. Microsoft Project and Visio 2010 will require separate activation since they use a different set of keys.
