You would setup Windows Server. Windows Server 2003 and 2008 Small Business Server comes with a license of Terminal Services Server.
You would first need to setup your Windows Server. Install it according to at least minimum requirements.
Make sure you assign this server the correct role. If this is the primary server and if you intend on hosting dns and dhcp on this machine, then please make sure you are assigning this server these roles.
You will need to create user accounts so that you can log into from your thin clients.
Next you need to run the install for Terminal Server.
Next you need to configure each thin client.
Next try to access each thin client via Remote Desktop as well as the server.
This is the basic run down of the process. If you do not know how to setup a server then you will need to ask that question as this is very detailed. Also you will need to be more detailed in your question as to whether this is a linux based network or a windows based network.
Hope this helps. Please don't forget to give me a good rating as well as your vote.
Hardware First: Is Vista confirming LAN connection onn that PC, or is it showing disconnected cable?
Is the connection properties showing at least 100Mbps?
Are the RJ45 terminals okay?
Is the driver for the network card recognized by Vista and loaded?
If that is fine, then check the following in the network properties:
1. The IP address you are using
2. The gateway address: it must be the same as the gateway address in the other PCs accessing internet. Run and check
