[THIN] Citrix & TS Licensing Confusion

I'm thoroughly confused over the licensing requirements for a Citrix server in 
a Windows 2003 environment.  
I have a Windows 2003 domain controller used as a fileserver.  My Citrix box is 
running on Windows 2000 and has licenses for Citrix and none for Terminal 
Services. I only use RDP to establish remote desktops for administrative 
purposes on my non-Citrix servers.  I did not have a TS Licensing Server 
configured until a few minutes ago (it's now on my domain controller) and it's 
activated although no TS CAL's have been added.

Should this be sufficient to allow ICA connections to my Citrix box from ALL 
clients (i.e., XP Home, Win9x, etc)?  

Is it correct that only Windows 2000 and Windows XP Pro & 2003 Server products 
include TS CAL's?
