How to access application on Terminal Server

I set up a Terminal Server on a Windows 2003 box. I then installed an application that I want my users to access via the TS, I placed the TS in install mode when installing the app and then changed it to execute. My question is what is the best way to enable users to access this app?  Should I just configure a remote desktop connection for them?  I tried that but the remote desktop connection client asks for a userID and password, the user is already logged on, I would like to disable this if possible. But when the user tries to connect after entering their credentials, they are prompted to logon to the server and a dialog box pops up and says that they must be in the remote desktop users group. Well I added the user into that group but still the same problem. What is the best way to go about this?
Thanks

that is the whole idea of TS...you cannot get around having to log on twice like that unless you configure a prebuilt RDP connection for them with credentials configured

The user will need to be part of the remote desktop users group on the terminal server itself - not neccesarily the domain group
