For administrative or Application mode?  In either case, you need to install the services - go to the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel, then click on the Windows Components section.  Look through there and make sure Terminal Services (not Terminal Services Licensing) is checked.  If not, check it.  Then continue.  That should install Terminal Services for you and prompt you for what mode to run them in.

Or maybe there's a firewall?  

Check the services - is it running?

Is this a domain controller?  Does the account you are using have Domain Admin rights?

No what?  No it's not a domain controller?

Did you setup the server as Administrative mode or application mode?

It would really, REALLY help if you could fully answer my questions so I don't have to spend 20 minutes deciphering what you may or may not mean.

server what?  A domain controller is a server.  A server that's not a domain controller is a server... so which is it (full sentences please).
The first option... so you mean "Administrative mode"  If so, normal users cannot log in to administrative mode.  It's called administrative mode because you're supposed to administer the server - normal users should not be administering a server.

For administrative purposes, only Administrators (domain admins or local admins) can access the server.  

If you go back to the control panel and remove and replace ANY component, the wizard should run again and you'll be given the option to change the mode to Application mode.  You'll need client licenses for each system accessing the server, but all Windows 2000 clients include licenses, so they can connect without issue.  Terminal Services Licensing is a massively annoying procedure and I've not done it in 2+ years (thank god).
