I already have my end setup for 16bit+ but the server settings are overriding my settings. I need to know how to tell the server to be set at 16bit+

You can't; sorry for the bad news.
W2k Terminal Services uses RDP 5.0 with a maximum color depth of 8 bit. Only RDP 5.1 (XP, Server 2003) supports a color depth of more than 8 bit.
That leaves you with two options: update to Server 2003, or use Citrix MetaFrame; the ICA protocol supports 16 bit. Citrix might just be massive overkill if you're only using it for remote administration.

If you need to change any server settings these are either found in Administrative Tools | Terminal Configuration ... Or they can be set in Group Policy
