Use the Office 2008 uninstaller to completely remove Office first before attempting a re-install. To use the uninstaller:
/Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Additional Tools/Remove Office/
Double click the "remove office.app"
Your serial key is not located in the keychain. MS encrypts it within an installation data file. Just use the remove office application as I described above. Note: You can not remove Office using conventional application removers as they do not remove all the necessary files such as the one containing the serial key information.
