How do I install Office 2007 on Terminal Server 2008

I have a Sever 2008 box and I have the license codes for the Office 2007 that is for Terminal Server.  I have tried to do the install /admin but does not work.  Can somebody please help me out installing Office 2007 on a terminal server 2008?  Thank you in advance!!

SETUP /ADMIN is used only to create the MSP file with your customizations.
All you do is run SETUP.EXE, nothing else.
The thing is you MUST use a VLA license to get it to work on TS. Regular Office 2007 licenses do NOT work.

You are correct, an I have the VLA licenses.  But when I try to install the Office 2007, it WILL NOT allow me saying something to the fact that it cannot be run on TS.  That is where I'm having some problems.

What is the exact error? Screenshot? Also which media do you have exactly and license for which exact version?

If you are attempting to run setup /admin and it is not letting you then I am thinking you may have OEM or Retail media.  Double check what media you are using and possibly re-download the media from eopen.  

OEM/Retail copies will not install on Terminal Servers and do not have the /admin option for setup.
