I'm using roaming profile for users on Windows 2003 R2 Server, and I don't want the roaming profile will take effect on Terminal Server. Is this possible and how can I set this up?

This can be configured through the Local Computer Policy:

Start > Run > mmc
File > Add Remove Snap-in > Add > Group Policy Object Editor > Finish

Enable the following option:

Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > User Profiles >  Only allow local user profiles.

Hope this helps.

Let me rephrase my question:
I'm using ROAMING PROFILE and LOGON SCRIPT for users to logon to Windows 2003 domain on LAN, both LOCAL USERS and REMOTE USERS are using the Terminal Server to run an application, HOW can I set up the user profile and logon script on the active directory that it will not execute on terminal server login? because I don't want that TERMINAL SERVER USERS will have the local profile copied to the server and run the map drive script conflicting with the server's local drives.
Appreciate your expert advice.
