You start by installing and activating a Terminal Services License Server on a W2k3 machine, preferably on a Domain Controller.
Then you install Terminal Services in Application Mode on your future terminal servers; you can install all this using the Add/Remove Windows Components Wizard.
Make sure that there are no applications installed that you want your users to use later on, especially not Microsoft Office!

A licensing server will have to be setup (do this first).  You can do this the same way as you did for Terminal Services.  You can use any W2k3/W2k Server to install the Licensing on, but a DC is preferred.  You will also have to activate the Licensing Server from "Terminal Server Licensing" applet found in Administrative Tools on that server after the install.  You will have to be a member of the Enterprise Admins group to activate this.  RC "All Servers" and select connect.  Specify the name of the server.  RC the new server name and select Activate, this will take a min to complete so don't worry if it doesn't update right away.

Go to Add/Remove programs, Add/Remove Windows Componets and check Terminal Services, Click OK and it will install.  Like oBdA said, make sure you remove MS Office from the Terminal Servers before installing.  Once Terminal Services has been installed you can re-install MS Office, but only install from the control panel, Add/Remove Programs applet.
