Will WS 2003 TS CAL work for WS2008 R2 RDS?

Hi,
I currently have one WS2003 TS with 25 TS CALs. Can I add a WS2008 R2 RDS server without buying new TS CALs and have the users log on to either or even both?
Cheers,

It depends. If you bought software assurance on your 2003 TS CALs then you should be able to call Microsoft and have them upgraded to 2008 CALs. If not you'll need to buy new CALs for the 2008 terminal servers.
