Hello Experts.  I have the following configuration.  

1) A Host Server running Server 2008 R2 with the Hyper V role installed
2)A brand new SBS 2011 Hyper V virtual machine installation which will run exchange and has the Remote Desktop Services installed and the license Server is activated for Remote desktop
3)A second Hyper V virtual machine which will run a terminal server for remote clients to connect to

My question, I am having trouble figuring out how to allow a remote users to connect to the Server in step 3.  Any quick advice?

As you will do it for any Terminal Server, no matter if it's running as a Hyper-V virtual machine or on a physical host. From end-client point of view there is no difference.

That means: installing the required service roles, licenses, certificates for Web Access, and opening the required port on the perimeter firewall if you want access from Internet.

I have done so and when I try to connect to the Terminal Server using the RD Gateway to authenticate I get an error saying "Your computer cant connect to the remote computer because the remote desktop gateway server address requested and the certificate subject name do not match.  What did I miss?  I did setup a purchased and valid SSL certificate and it is not giving me an error when I access Outlook Web Access.  Thoughts?

If you are trying to do this via RDGateway on he SBS server, the easiest route is to use the SBS cert wizard to generate a CSR and then rekey. Then use the SBS wizard again to install the cert. Setting a certificate in IIS is independent from RDGateway, so using exchange walkthroughs on the web will cause the mismatch error you describe. With SBS, it is always best to stick to the wizards.

That's how I had done it.  What happened was I was doing testing before the A record was established and used an IP address in the RD Gateway field on the Remote Desktop client.  I changed it to the remote.domain.com domain and now that it matches the SSL certificate and it logs in without issues.  Thank You for your input.
