Is there a way to automatically uninstall office 2003, whether it be by setup switches or what?  I would like to automatically uninstall office 2003 from our users workstations and reinstall a fresh copy of office.

Rin office setup again from the CD (or from a network share) and on the initial screen select 'remove'.
If you deployed it with a GPO you can remove it likewise.

To remove office at the command line just use the uninstall function in the Microsoft Windows Installer.

Example: msiexec D:\setup.exe /x pro11n.msi /qb

/x is the important bit. That just reverses any configuration related to the specified MSI file. D:\setup.exe is the office CD I had in my CD ROM drive. You might have setup.exe (for your office install) somewhere on your network.
