We have Windows SBS 2003 and two Windows 2003 Storage Servers. We want to implement terminal services for a couple of clients to be able to work from an remote location. What would be the best way to implement this? What hardware/software/licenses would we need?

First you just need another server and then turn the terminal services function on.
Once done you will need to configure it and add terminal server cals.

Are you familiar with virtual servers? If you have an SBS server with reasonable "horsepower" you can add a virtual server to the same hardware. I wouldn't recommend this for a heavy use Terminal server, but for 1/2 dozen users I have done this on numerous occasions. Using a virtual server eliminates the need for additional hardware, but you still need a 2003 server license and TS CALs (Client Access Licenses). Vitalization also makes it very easy to back up the entire virtual server, and if ever necessary it can be moved to new hardware as fast as you can copy the file.

Most of my SBS customers just dedicate a PC with Windows XP on it for remote connections.  For one or two remote users, it's a lot cheaper than an additional server and terminal server cals and all.
