"Ok..if I go with a seperate server fot TS, does this server has to be a DC in the same forest?"  No, a TS server should not be a DC

"or I just install win2k3 and TS service on it. and just specify it's location in the DNS,"  No idea what you mean here...


You want to install a second server in your environment.  Make this server a member server of your domain.  Then install the Terminal Services service and the Terminal Service License service on this server.

DC and DNS is very good to place on the same server.  However, TS on a DC is not a good choice.  if possible place this on a seperate server.

Q. I want to deploy Terminal Server on my domain controller. How do I give users access?
 
A. Microsoft does not recommend this practice, as it compromises security on the domain controller. However, you can find information in Domain Controllers Require the "Log on Locally" Group Policy Object for Terminal Services Client Connections (Q247989) in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

i agree with NJComputerNetworks, only put TS on this server if it is your only one. If you do, make sure to safeguard your system and crucial data with NTFS permissions, as you will be allowing users to access the server directly through a TS session.

Good Luck,
