In my opinion Terminal Server is a good option to install on your Windows 2000 Server.  If you don't plan on allowing your users to access it in order to run programs it can also be used in Remote Administration mode to do all you server maintenance.  If you set up the Advanced Web Client from Microsoft with your IIS Server then you can access your server from any Internet Explorer 4 or Higher browser.
