We use roaming profiles, located on a server 2003 R2 machine.

Testing an install of office 2010 on my machine (windows 7 x64)

When working across my documents folder (roaming profile, located on a server 2003 network share) office is extremely slow to save files, or navigate tabs. Is there a fix for this?

For example, when I say slow, after opening a document clicking the "file" button takes about 17 seconds.

Are you sure that you dont have any disconnected shared drives? This will make the process dead slow

There is a Service pack one for Office 2010. I would install that but I don't that it'll solve the slowness issue. Is there anything maxed out in your task manager?  
Also network shortcuts that no longer exist will cause issues when you attempt to open and find files with office just as mapped drives that no longer exist.
also you say roaming profiles, does anything that access any network resource have an issue, what is your connection/switch situation?

I would install SP1 like someone has recommended since this seems to have fixes some problems I have worked with.
