Nope, sorry; Office 2007 requires XP or later, it will NOT install on Windows 2000 or earlier (just like Office 2003 didn't install on NT4 anymore).

The only Compatibility Pack for Office I've heard of is this:
How to open and save Word 2007, Excel 2007, and PowerPoint 2007 files in earlier versions of Office programs
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/924074
Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=941b3470-3ae9-4aee-8f43-c6bb74cd1466&displaylang=en

But this will only allow you to open/save Office 2007 *files* while running Office 200x, it will *NOT* allow you to install Office 2007 on a Windows 2000 machine.
