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?

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