Terminal Services licensing 2003 & 2008

I have a client with a 2003 server running Terminal Services.  The TS Licensing Server is also installed on the 2003 server.  The domain controller is 2008.  There are about 30 users.
I am thinking of adding a 2nd Terminal Server with 2008.
The client has 2003 Terminal Services CALs.  Can I upgrade those or do I need to purchase new CALs?  They have device CALs.
Where should I install the TS Licensing Server?  I believe it has to be on a 2008 server.  My thought is to put it on the domain controller.
I would also like to store the profiles on the domain controller (current profiles are very small).  Do I need to be concerned with compatibility issues if I'm running 2 operating systems (2003 & 2008) for Terminal Services?
Any other thoughts or suggestions?

You have to purchase TS licenses for the 2008 machine,  they are different products and can't be transferred between machines.

If you want to add new Terminal Server, then you have to go for licencing on Server 2008. You can choose licence type ie. per user or per machine.
And there will be compatability issues.
