How do I add simple remote desktop services / licensing roles in Win 2008 R2?

I have a Windows 2008 R2 64Bit server running on a simple workgroup with just a handful of LAN users.  Server is running great but I need to add the Remote Desktop Services role and add the 5 user RDP open license I purchased.  Just need to have a few users log on remotely and connect to the server to run a app on the server.  Are there simple instructions for this?  I have the firewall opened and can connect as admin via remote RDP.  Do I just add the RDS host service and licensing service for this?  I don't think I need all services for 3 or so users to connect via RDP offsite do I?  Slightly confusing.  Thanks!

Does it have to be a DC to setup RDS H&L?  I'd like to leave it "stock" - just a file server for a small office.

No, as far as I know there is no requirement for a DC. I am not even sure if RDS can be installed on a DC at all.
