Terminal Server and Small business server 2003 premium

We have small business server 2003 premium and I was wondering if we could use it for remote access.  Does it include terminal server licenses?  Is it safe to run TS on our domain controller?  If so how do I set this up?

    SBS cannot be a terminal server.  It supports Remote Desktop for administration purposes only (2 connections + console, max).  SBS does NOT come with any terminal services licenses beyond the remote administration.  You can use Terminal Services on an SBS network, but you need another server to do this and NO, it should NOT be a DC (it can be, but it's not at all recommended).
