Installer says there are not enough space on my Win XP VM, it requires
about 1700MB, even if I unselect almost all components it still says
it's required about 1550MB of free space.

Put the file on your host, install from there using whatever
networking/file sharing you have setup for your VM

exe file extracted to the folder named "LibreOffice 3.3 (4cf8f8a3)
Installation Files" via wine (the Host is Linux), then this folder is
moved to the shared folder on the host, then the setup.exe is run on the
guest. On guest there is about 950 MB free. I also tried to use network
drive, there should be enough space given that it requires about 1700
MB, but the installer doesn't allow me to install on the network drive,
even if you spicify the path, after click on the "Next" button, a window
appears where you can select the drive C (guest) or the etwork drive. It
seems it continues to count free space on the guest drive (not on the
network drive), but the window with drives is not resonding, you can
only click on Cancel or OK (don't remember).

Hmm, I tried it and it wants 1728MB to install. this is not right, it does not use 
that much space.  I don't know much about Windows though. I use W2K & NT4 for 
legacy support.

My Windows 2K drive is short of space, like your drive. I  installed it on my 
Linux host, it only uses 685MB of space.  This method works for Oo 3.2.1, which 
was 486 MB installed.

I use Samba and bridged networking for my host/guest setup.

The window with the drives you mentioned is an information only window,  you 
change the path to install , elsewhere.
