Which Office version for Terminal servers?

I need to install Office 2007 (Word, Excel, Outlook , Access, Powerpoint) on 2 new terminal servers supporting 10 users each. Please could you tell me the following:-

1. Which Version do I need (MS part number please)
2. How many licences I need and of what type

As this has legal repercussions please qualify your answers.

I have access to open licences, but no one seems to know how many of what I need.

Thanks

Ok thanks, but what about the number of licences and can I use my action pack to licence it?

The software in Microsoft Action Pack Subscription (MAPS) is licensed as Not for Distribution (NFD). This is not an exact interpretation, but basically you can't use this software in other businesses, on your mom's computer, on one of your customer's computers, etc. It is for your "practice" network.

As for the licensing, I recommend contacting Microsoft's Licensing Division directly so they can advise you on what you need to do.

I dont know the Part Number but your reseller should - make sure you buy the Volume Licence (VL) pack - make sure that it covers you for each concurrent user.

You cannot use the Action Pack as
a) that is not for "production use"
b) is not a volume licence edition.
