What operating system are you running?  Windows 9x?  Even there
I don't know why Unicode would generate a disk space warning; does it
default to UCS-4 or something silly like that?  Windows NT 4.x, 2000, XP,
and 2003 all use UTF-8 natively.  Disk space is not a big concern.

Anyway, Unicode isn't a piece of software you download and install.
It's a specification to which other software conforms (or, more often,
doesn't conform, but that situation is improving).  All you need in
order to display Unicode 4.x glyphs is a font that includes the desired
glyphs and their Unicode 4.x mappings.  You don't need anything more
from the word processor or operating system than what is required for
Unicode 2.x.
