You have to have a enterprise edition of office 2007 to install on a terminal server.

This problem was due to Terminal Services running in relaxed security mode. The 2007 Office suite Setup program is only supported when Terminal Services is running in full security mode.

    Relaxed security mode provides an environment that is compatible with most legacy programs. It also emulates the Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition permissions compatibility mode.
    Full security mode helps provides a secure environment, and programs must be written to run in the context of an ordinary user.

To work around this issue, you must run Terminal Services in full security mode. When you run Terminal Services in full security mode, Terminal Server users will have the same permissions as members of the Users group. To do this, follow these steps:

   1.  Open Terminal Services Configuration.
   2.  Click Server Settings.
   3.  Right-click Permission Compatibility, and then click Properties.
   4.  Click to select the Full Security check box, and then click OK.

The above changes allowed Office 2007 to be installed. Once completed, the Permissions Compatability was returned to 'relaxed security mode' to aid legacy software.
