Office 2010 install problem server 2003

I can't select "run all from my computer" when i try to install office 2010 on my server 2003 box. It only allows it for Sharepoint workspace, visio viewer, and office shared features. I have repeated the problem on a separate 2003 box. One has all windows updates, the other does not. Completely lost on this.

One thing that was odd was before I even got that far in the install it prompted me to install MSXML6 Parser SP1 or above. I tried 3 different versions with no change.

OMG surely you jest. I have a Citrix server that I can't upgrade without starting from scratch. Holy smokes... no workarounds anybody? Please?

or install iis6 - via vebinstall- this should install MSXML6 Parser but might damage your citrix config

Thank you for solving this riddle. I'm not sure what method I will take. Am considering running the "partial" install and seeing how far we get.
