The guide I wrote covers it all for 2003 and gives you a very solid foundation for 2008 (as they are very similar). Group Policies and SRP is the way to go. For 2008 also look at Group Policy Preferences (search Google).
My guide is available at http://www.wtslabs.com. Look for "Terminal Services A to Z". Free download.

Did you read my guide? Did you check GPP as I posted?
With these 2 you can do all you are asking. Unless I did not  understand your question properly.
