SBS 2003 CANNOT be used as a terminal server.  You must install a second server - that can be your terminal server.  This is done in part for security reasons.  If you don't have the money for a second physical server, you can create a virtual server and install another licensed copy of Windows 2003 Standard edition on the virtual system, allowing that to run Terminal Services.  This would be less than ideal as both Virtual Machine software and Terminal Services tend to be RAM hungry and SBS can only support 4 GB of RAM.
