It's my understanding that you can't use Groove to interact directly with SharePoint 2010 sites.  

However, you can still take copies of lists in a 2010 site offline into Outlook 2007.

Yes, you can do that with Office 2007.  I'm assuming this is related to your other question about the option being greyed out.

Go to the library you want to sync, in the ribbon at the top there will be a button to "connect to Outlook"

Outlook will hold an offline copy of the files in the library.  It will show up in your folder list in Outlook , towards the bottom.
