Good question Justin. Actually it is possible to deploy Office 2007 through
GP but it has completely changed. You no longer create an admin install
point. You just copy the CD  bits to the share. And, it no longer supports
transforms. You have a file called config.xml that support minimal
customization that you put in the install directory along with the bits.
Really a step back actually. MS used to have a technet article describing
this but the pulled it recently. However, thanks to the wonders of Google,
you can still find it cached at

Does anyone know who the Office 2007 products can be pushed out via group
policy?  How do you create an administrative installation point?  How to you
include customizations?
