If it's just for personal study, is your system "big enough" to run a 
terminal server in a virtual machine?

If you already have a system configured but is going to be repurposed, 
there is a utility (free) from vmware that will convert the computer 
into an image to run. You may have to alter a couple drivers on first 
start (and be sure to plan for the network settings so you don't have a 
dupe on the network if one is on while the other is booting), but I've 
imaged...6?...servers from win2k to win2003 with that tool.

*shrug* just an idea, if you're just studying it for your own purposes 
and learning.
