CITRIX and TS CAL license question

Was wondering with the following scenario:

If i had 800 users who would require access to the Citrix server from time to time and i only had a license for Citrix Presentation Enterprise for 55 concurrent , do I need to buy 800 TS CAL from Microsoft.

What OS are your Citrix Servers?
TS CALs are licensed Per User or Per Device depending on which model fits you best.  This is how the licensing works (basic):

Windows NT Terminal Servers - NT Workstation, 2000 Pro, and XP Pro workstations get a TS CAL "built-in"; all others need a TS CAL

Windows 2000 Terminal Servers - 2000 Pro and XP Pro workstations get a TS CAL "built-in"all others need a TS CAL

Windows 2003 Terminal Servers - all workstations need a TS CAL; "Every Windows XP Professional desktop license that you own on the date of the public launch of Windows Server 2003 (April 24, 2003) is eligible for a Windows Server 2003 TS CAL (found in below link)"
