How to rename/recofigure Remote Desktop Connection Port for Server 2008

How do I go about changing the port number for Remote Desktop Connection in Server 2008? I want to change it to a higher number from the default of 3389. Is it wise to change it to something in the 19000 range? I heard this was good to do because port scanning would take too much time to find that port. ** I am totally new to Server 2008, as in every post I am a hardware guy, but I couldn't become a software guy without Experts Exchange!
