Just bought a new MCP and need help in the set-up. I installed MS Office 2008 for MAC as "administrator" and want to have the programs also available for my 2 children's accounts on the same MCP. What do I need to do?
Thanks!!!

They just need to launch it from the Applications folder:
On a mac the /Applications folder is available to all users. The data and settings are stored in each user's home folder though, so that's user-specific.

Thanks for the info....but....
Will they then always see the excel, word, etc. icons on the dock when they log-in? And where do I find the application folder? (need to translate the terms into German...)

If you drag the icons to their Docks, sure!

All your apps are in:
"Macintosh HD / Programme".

To get there, double-click the Mac HD icon on your desktop & then click on "Programme". From there you can launch all of the installed applications, or add them to the dock by dragging an icon into the dock area. (Note: You can only drag folders into the right-hand side of the dock, right of the divider.
