Proper W2K3 Terminal Server Setup

I'm a little hazy on proper Terminal Server Setup, so please correct me or shoot your suggestions.  Any insight is welcomed!

I am under the impression that first, you need server within the Organization to be a Terminal Server License Server, AND should not be the actual Terminal Server.

Then, you need a server within the Organization to be a Terminal Server that authenticates to the Terminal Server License Server.

Then, this where I am really confused, you need to install term serv cals on the Terminal Server License Server, not the the actual Terminal Server???

Any help with clearing the fog would be appreciated!  Thanks EE!

The TS licensing server should be seperate from the TS server. The cals are then installed on the licensing server. When a user authenticates to the TS server it pulls a cal from the licensing server. this is a pretty good read: http://www.brianmadden.com/content/content.asp?id=154
