On a standard Windows Server 2003, you don't install the CALs to the server software. The server isn't aware of any CALs - but you must purchase them and keep the certificate of authenticity which you receive somewhere safe in order to make your server software legal. The only way to check the number of CALs installed is to find all your CAL certificates, or contact your Windows Server licensing company for more information.

The only exception is if you have Small Business Server - in the case of an SBS, you do need to install the CALs, but since you haven't said you have the SBS server package I doubt you actually do, in which case you don't install the CALs.

You open the Server Manager from the Start Menu, and go to the Licensing tab. You will find the number of CALs in there.
