You can manually delete all the office 97 files and then run setup from scratch. The only problem is that all or any of your important documents will probably be deleted this way also. You should be able to do this through win explorer. Be careful and only delete if you are sure what you are deleting.

I would try running REGCLEAN, this will clean up your registry and remove any corrupt entries. I have had the error that you stated and this fixed the problem. I was then able to reinstall my software.REGCLEAN can be downloaded from the Microsoft site.

Hope this helps
