The VM needs to be running a server edition of windows, XP and Vista don't
run the TS Application version that I'm aware of.
Don't mistake the VM for the Windows 2003 server host machine.
Depending on how many users you need, and which flavor of Win2K3 your
running, you might be able to run 4 VMs with Win 2k3 installed in admin
mode, that would get you 8 user desktops. Performance might be an issue
depending on your hardware, and the users could affect each other by
shutting down or rebooting their VM.
