Terminal Services and logging in locally

I'm not too familiar with terminal services so i'm hoping to get a bit of assistance with the following:

1. If I login locally as Administrator
(and a user who is a member of Users) via Terminal Services on a Window 2000 Server.  Can I still perform all the tasks as if I was logged in locally (ie: would I still have access to the Internet?)  Is terminal services literally like i'm sitting in front of the computer?

2. How does this differ for Windows 2003 Server?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

it is basically like you are using the computer locally. but there are a "few" little gotchas, but usually don't interfere with users.
