Can you explain a bit more? What do you mean by terminal server? Do you want to access this system from a remote machine?
You can simply go to System > Preferences > Remote Desktop and enable it to access it from remote machine.
Also it would be better to explain what you are trying to do. You might get better options.

Re-ask on question?

Here is what i think this person is asking.....,

1- Person has server, probably a VPS- And they probably got it to offer better services to web design clients, or to set up flash media server via root access. prefabricated FMS hosting costs a crapload and I don't think I want to pay that cost to be the boss of my video streams. (I know you get what you pay for....)

2- Went the cheap route and got no added support or opted not to get the cpanel which can do alot of the suff for you but the hosting providers charge a much higher monthly fee for what I see as a one time install of something (except for updates) Also some hosting does not include the extras...,

3- So this newbie (NOW I'm talking about me) has done some readings and has had some 10 year Linux/unix/etc. vet who thinks your an idiot for trying to do it yourself and that you'll be sorry.

4- Now armed with just enough knowledge to get into trouble, the newbie can't figure out how to ask the proper question(s)., like for example, "I'm paying for a server and I would like to get remote access to install the mail server program, mysql, and the other stuff I need to start making wordpress pages or install Flash Media Server". if the newbie has OS X then he can use Terminal but what exactly do you type into the terminal to get to the directories????? I'm in the middle of a newbie tutorial from VTC on Linux basics and the instructor has totally passed over how he gets to the terminal window- I know he's on the local machine but he didn't show how to access the server remotely......,

You should not have hijacked a thread. Your issue could be similar to OP's but I do not know.
There is a package called tsclient that you can use to connect to remote windows machine. You just need to start the application and provide the necessary details. But you will first need to allow remote connections in win 2003 server.
