Installing Software on Windows Terminal Server 2008

We just got a new Windows 2008 server and are going to make it be a terminal server. I know in Windows 2003 you were supposed to go to Add/Remove programs to put new software on a terminal server. How is this done in Windows Server 2008? It seems like it must be different because when I go to Programs and Features and click "Install a program from the network" it doesn't do anything... any help or hints would be appreciated.

Thanks

Install the Terminal Server Role
Then just install the "Terminal Server approved" software by running the exe / msi package from explorer

Alrighty then. We put the role on so I guess we just install as normal. I'm just used to 2003 where you were supposed to do it from Add/Remove programs.
