Conflicting Citrix Info

I am getting some conflicting information about CitrixPresentaion server and win2003 terminal servers, so I need some clarification on how things will be setup and configured in regards to number of servers, what will be on each server, licensing and so forth. I currently have two win2003 servers, one is my DC, the second is my SQL server. We will be setting up a remote office with 20 users and was told that I would need to add two win2003 terminal servers with 20 CAL's, and one copy of Citrix presentation server. I was told that the first TS would be configured to run our SQL app and the second TS would run our MS Office apps. I was told that the Citrix Presentation server 4 would not require any CAL's because it would use the TS CAL's. I was told that the Citrix Presentation server would be installed on one of the TS's and be configured so that both TS's would operate as a single server for the remote users.

If the above is true, below is what I am planning on ordering. Is there anything else I need?

2 - dual XEON servers w 4gb ram
2 - Win2003 server o/s
20 - Terminal Servers CAL's
1- Citrix Presentation Server 4

Not quite. You don't buy "1 Citrix Presentation Server 4"; PS is licensed by concurrent client connections, and the PS would be installed on both servers.
Check here for the different versions of presentation server:
Citrix Presentation Server Editions

So you'll need 20 TS CALs (those are required even if running Citrix), and 20 Citrix connections.
