First I would hope you bought a server from a major mainufacturer not built one yourself...

Terminal Server is really a service that is run on Windows Server 2003.  It you have a windows 2003 server running you can add the component from add and remove programs.  Then you will be able to configure the terminal services required and load up applications need for the terminal service.
You will need to have valid terminal services licenses as well.
