I need to provide secure remote desktop access to multiple users in a small business. I believe they currently are running SBS 2008 (identifies as Windows Server Standard FE). My understanding is that Remote Desktop Services cannot be installed on an SBS server. My questions--can I add another Windows Standard Server to the domain and run Remote Desktop Services on it? Anything I should be careful about or consider in advance with this scenario?

Hardware for the 2nd server is available and licensing is affordable as they are a non-profit.

Yes, you can set up a second server in an SBS 2008 domain and run terminal services on that. This is the preferred solution. In fact, SBS 2008 Premium comes with the second server's license already (you might want to check and see if they already have that second license).
