Licensing for Win2k Terminal Server with Win2k and XP workstations

I am quite confused about the licensing for Windows 2000 Terminal Server. Assuming I have all Windows 2000 and Windows XP workstations and Windows 2000 Server, what licenses do I have to obtain?

If you want a legal opinion about licensing, you need to check with the company doing the licensing. Microsoft has this information on its Web site. That said, you can check out my explanation of Windows 2000 Pro (and XP) clients and Windows 2000 Server, and why you still need a license server even if all your clients are running Win2K Pro or XP.
