I have an office with a Windows 2003 Server Standard with DC, AD, Exchange 03, etc. I would like to set up a separate W2K3 Server Standard and add it to that main office on the same LAN.
How would I go about adding a separate server (for TS) to the current setup?

Not much to it - install it and add it to the domain essentially the same as you would if this were a workstation.  (Are you sure your existing server is NOT a Small Business Server (SBS)?

It is a Windows Server 2003 Standard.
So no trick to it, just add as if adding a workstation?

Pretty much - if you wanted to make it a DC, then you would have a couple of additional steps... but member servers, no trick.  Once added, you have to setup terminal services, but that's another question (you'll need a licensing server installed and configured), but just adding it to the domain is not a problem.
