Applications on Terminal Services - Dynamics

This I hope is simple to answer but as it is Microsoft maybe not! We run a Microsoft Dynamics GP9 I am in the process of building new Application Servers that will be running W2K3 Terminal Services.
I really wanted to use W2K8 but have been told this is not possible hence W2K3

Each company has its own shortcut as it uses different ini and set files so for example to log into the Australia “company “ the Shortcut is

E:\Dynamics\Australia\Dynamics.exe "E:\DYNAMICS\Australia\Dynamics.set"

We have 14 live companies all with different shortcuts and different users have permissions to log into different companies. So I need to ship out different shortcuts to different users (not essential as there is different security inside GP but better)

What I was hoping was to create a shortcut for each "company" that would launch the application rather than a RDP so users can Alt TAB between applications running on their local PC.
I know that this is possible in W2K8 Terminal Services!

Can anyone advise as to the best solution?
