I have read through a number of articles and I don't think this has been covered anywhere, if it has please accept my apologies,

My company is running Windows 2003 SBS will all the trimmings, we have a remote web work place set up

http://Mycompany/Remote

I have recently installed Windows 2008 Std Server running Terminal Services and Terminal Services Web - What I would like to do is have a url http://mycompany.com/TSapps which redirects to the IIS on the Windows 2008 box, the IIS on the terminal server works internally using a url http://server3/ts

I have created a virtual directory and I have named it TSapps so the url should be http://mycompany.com/TSapps but whenever I try and connect to it I get You are not Authorized or page can not be found?

Any ideas??

I don't think you're looking for a redirect.  A redirect is a response sent to the browser to get a different address and then the browser makes a second request with that new address.  This means the redirect address must also be publically accessible and your ".local" address is definately not.

I'm going to take a guess and maybe say your SBS server is also acting as your firewall (ISA I beleive?)?  If so you need to "publish" your website on your 2008 server thru ISA (there is a wizard in isa to do so).  Even if you're not using your SBS as your firewall I'm still guessing that mycompany.com points to the public IP on your firewalls external interface.  Most firewalls have a 'publish server' or Network address translation option to do exactly what you're trying to do.  The only tricky part of this to me at the moment is that you want requests of one subfolder (http://Mycompany.com/Remote) to go to your SBS box and requests of another subfolder to go to your new 2008 box (/tsapps).  I beleive you can do this with ISA server, but not sure about other firewalls.
