rdp in windows 2000

Hi can anyone tell me can i configure windows server 2000 terminal services to run on a higher colour range than 256 or can i install rdp 5.1 onto the server to allow this change.

You can't, sorry. Windows 2000 (or, better, RDP 5.0) only supports 256 colors.
You can only upgrade to Server 2003, or you can use Citrix; ICA supports up to 24bit.

Just adding a second to oBdA's comment - 2000 Terminal Services (without third party add-ons/services such as citrix) does not support more than 256 colors.
