Upgrading to Office 2013 on old Terminal Server

I want to install Office 2013 on a Terminal server.  The server is currently Server 2003 and has Office 2003 installed.  Are there any know issues installing 2013 on server 2003 and is it advisable to leave Office 2003 installed or would you recommend I remove 2003 before installing 2013?
As you can probably tell, I’m looking to perform the upgrade as smoothly as possible, so if you know of any gottchas, please advise.

Thanks G
