terminal services on SBS 2000

the microsoft SBS FAQ says it't not recommended to use the TS application mode on the SBS 2000

But I only expect 5 clients and it has to be cheap of course.

Does it make sense though?

config:
Win2k SBS
Terminal Services max. 5 Users (4 Users all the time)
SQL Server
file sharing
printer queue
faxing
software RAID 1
512 MB

only db-App will generate some load.

Thanks for some opinion based on real live _experience_!

Sometimes people cannot afford what Microsoft recommends.  I have set up a server for one of my company's clients that runs Exchange, file and print, Active Directory and Citrix Metaframe.  The server has been up and running for a year and a half and it works fine.  I think it will work for you but it would not be as fast a running Terminal Services on a separate server.  You also could run Terminal Services on a fast desktop if you are just going to have 5 users but if in the future you are looking to increase the number I would invest in another server.
