Can I install Office 2010 without uninstalling 2000

We have 3 Terminal servers running Office 2000. We are upgrading to Office 2010. My quesion is, do I have to remove Office 2000 from the serves or can I just do the Office 2010 install and it will upgrade everything? We dont want to lose any of the users docs from 2000.

Not by default, but you can create a fs logical space exclusive for the instalation of the program with 3rd party software like WinJail.

So are you saying that I do not have to uninstall Office 2000 first?
ups. I didnt understand the question. To just scan the viability of the upgrade use this tool from Microsoft:

It tells you if the direct upgrade is possible on your sistems.

I think torque_20 was answering another question.

No you do not need to install office 2000, the docs are not tied to the office install they are separate.

So I do not have to uninstall 2000 on the TS before installing 2010 Chuckyh?
Just making sure I understood what you meant.

when you install Office 2010, you'll encounter a dialog box where you can select whether you want to replace or keep previous versions of Office. If you select to keep your current Office versions, Office 2010 will install gracefully side by side and you can use both versions at the same time.

The only application that you have to decide on is Outlook: You can only run one version of Outlook on your machine, and downgrading to a previous version after installing a newer one is complicated and not advisable. So you either not install Outlook 2010 and keep using Outlook 2000 (but who'd want to do that? :-)), or you decide to go the whole hog and install everything.

It never did give to me the option of replacing or keeping the old version. So I just installed the new version and removed the old one...

Just installed the new version and deleted the old one.
