Go raibh maith agat, a Phil. I wish they had one for Office 2000, but alas it doesn't appear that they do. Oh well, someday I may upgrade.

I haven't got Word XP at the mo' but I'm gonna get it to use that. And by get it I mean get a copy of it.
I hope the grammar thing is good, like puts "h"s on things and urúz on things for you. Like you'd type "ar an bord" and you'd get a green line under it to change it to "mbord". That'd be pretty cool.

For those of you that don't have Word 2002, try this:
http://www.gaelspell.com/

I do not have Word 2002 myself. Has anyone used the spellchecker from Microsoft? I would love to know how good it is...

I haven't used it either due to not having WordXP. However, the actual work was done by the same team who set up Gaelspell, with some additional work to get it into WordXPs framework.

I've considered downloading Gaelspell in the past, but it appears to me that when you install it that it just dumps the Irish words into the English dictionary, instead of creating a separate Irish dictionary. I may be wrong, but that's what it looks like.

That would be a problem for words like:

said vs. siad

So if you typed "You siad you were coming" I don't think it'd still catch that siad was a misspelling in this case. Or, in reverse, "Tá said go deas.", where said should obviously be siad.

If they're in separate dictionaries it's not a problem as you can simply tell Word what dictionary to spell check the document against, or indicate that a doc is written in a given language.

If there's someone out there using Gaelspell that can verify that my concerns are unfounded I'd download it in a heartbeat!

the gaelspell uses a different dictionary. You select the dictionary you want to use before you type. so go download!
