I am a little ignorant about Terminal Services and Remote Desktop.
Our small network is researching the use of either Termianl Services or Remote Desktop (via DSL) to run a 5-10 user Access application (2 user sites hitting one central server).

I have some questions:

(1)  Can you purchase a license(s) for Terminal Services usage without purchasing Windows Server 2000?
(2)  If you have Windows Server 2000, how many user licenses are included?  Can you purchase additional licenses?
(3)  I understand that Remote Desktop, which is included in Win Xp Professional, is very similar in features to Termisnal Services.  Is this accurate?
(4)  If I am trying to license these 5-10 users, hitting one central server (not heavy usage, but could be at the same time), which product would be recommended: Terminal Services or Remote Desktop?

your help is appreciated very much!!
