Dear Norm et al,
Perhaps portable apps would be a good solution: http://portableapps.com/apps/office. You could install it on a usb stick and plugin it into the netbook when needed, if that would match your needs.
You could use a portable version of Open Office or Libre Office (http://portableapps.com/apps/office/libreoffice_portable).
If you are considered at taking up space on the hard drive. There are also other portable basic Word Processors available (http://portableapps.com/apps/office)

Norm, et al ATHENites
The website for Open Office indicates you cannot download just the Writer, but you can achieve a single component install by clicking the download link and then selecting CUSTOM INSTALL. From this, choose Writer only. You should be good to go. The site I checked doesn't recommend this, though. Let me know if you need more info.
Hope this is helpful.
