" Citrx Presenattion server for windows can only be installed on windows server 2003 with terminal services running in application server mode"

The operating system is windows server 2003 R2 64 bit edition and no terminal server is configured on the server and no terminal services are installed.

Please let me know the solution.

To get this going you can go to Add/remove programs, click on Add/Remove Windows Components and then check the box next to Terminal Server.  If you don't already have a server managing TS licensing, you need that too (can be the same server if desired).
Also note that once you add the TS component and then Citrix Pres. Server,  you generally need to re-install any other apps you intend for people to be able to use on the server, such as Office or whatever else they will need (anything installed before adding TS was installed will probably not work unless re-installed).
