What is the difference between terminal server 2000 and 2003?

I'm looking for a basic overview of the differences between terminal server 2000 and terminal server 2003. We are getting ready to migrate, and I want our users to know what the new capabilities of the new server system will be. Can someone provide a web site, or a brief description of terminal server 2003's abilities over 2000? Any help would be appreciated!

Hi mckeough:

See EE Q Titled: Terminal Server 2000 vs 2003
Some other things to remember for your users:
Have them replace the RDP Client that comes standard with Windows XP with the RDP Client that comes with Server 2003. One bonus of utilizing this client is that it allows the transfer of all locally installed printers in the machine to transfer into the TS session. Another purpose is also beneficial for the administrator of the environment is using the console switch (also available in XP SP2) - EX: servername /console gives you true console access to the machine just like PC Anywhere and it also allows for a 3rd RDP session intot the box. Hope this info helps.

Thanks guys! Both of these things helped, so I'll up the points to 300 and split them down the middle.
