MS office on new computer

Need some help from you guys. I bought a new notebook computer today. The people at the store dropped my old hard drive into my new computer, so that I have two hard drives in this computer (C: and E:). The new hard drive, of course, is the one running Windows (XP Home, if it makes a difference). Which is all fine, except that I no longer have access to the applications I ran on my old computer, most notably MS Office. I had a legit, purchased copy of MS Office loaded on to my old computer. However, I learned that I can't simply navigate to E:\Program Files\Office and try to open the applications. I don't think buying MS Office again is a fair solution, but I'd also like to not have to resort to pirated software. Do I have an out?
