Check out Aqua Connect with Terminal Server. I have not tried the software yet but hope to test it in the near future. If someone has experience with it, please post as well.

ACTS 2.0 and 3.1 delivers the Macintosh OS X experience to diverse hardware, software platforms and mobile devices. Users can simply log into the OS X server as if connected directly to the server’s console, work with a full-featured OS X desktop and run OS X based applications. All user sessions are fully isolated from one another.
