OK I have windows 2000 SBS witch had AD, DC DHCP, DNS. We are small company with only 8 computers accessing the server.  
I have second machine with Windows 2003 Enterprise and VMware server.  

I have created virtual Machine windows 2003 enterprise and would like to move the terminal services from the old machine to the new one so I can rebuild the old one and then move them back.

Id this possible and/or Feasible?

Let me confirm:
-Old server is SBS running TS in Application mode?
-New server is 2003 Ent running TS in Application mode?
You cannot "move" terminal service. It's not something you can pick up and drop on a new server. Especially from 2000 to 2003.
You can Upgrade a running Windows 2000 TS with Windows 2003, but that requires additional config as there are more features in 2003, and requires a new set of CAL's. And definately not on SBS 2003 (no TS included any more).
You cannot use your TS CAL's and Licensing Server from 2000 in 2003, so in your scenario you'd need to install TS License Server on a 2003 machine in the domain.
Since TS is just a Shell and the TS experience depends on the hosted Applications, you will need to install the user Applications on the new server and again on the rebuilt server when you switch back.

Ok so i can setup the terminal server on the new 2003 Enterprise machine, via TS Liscenese server. Does that mean I will have to purchase new CALS?

Also 2003 ENT came with 25 CALS, but these are not the same as TS CALS are they?

Thanks for the assistance.

You can install the TS Licensing Server on any Windows 2003 server in the domain; it is preferred if this is another machine than the Terminal Server itself, but I guess in your SBS 2000 domain you have no choice. You need to purchase TS CAL's; these are in addition to the Windows Server CAL's that came with your Server license, and these need to be activated in the TS License Server.
