    In your situation look at VNC or NetMeeting RDS to access/control a remote W2K machine, ie. a
    non-W2K Server box. Get the VNC server and client from...

    [url]http://www.realvnc.com[/url]

    NetMeeting is built-in to XP and 2000 and can *NOT* be upgraded. Look at this KB article for help
    with RDS...

    [url]http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;233175[/url]

    If this is over the public internet, then keep in mind the VNC data link is *NOT* encrypted like the
    NetMeeting RDS link is, if that matters to you. Some folks run VNC through SSH or VPN tunnels.

    Another alternative, and I have not tried this, is...

    Hi Franklin,
    With the remote desktop client you can only connect to Windows XP machines
    or Windows 2000/2003 Server with terminal services installed. If your
    running 2000 Professional you cannot connect to it using the remote desktop
    client, instead you would need some 3rd party software such as VNC Viewer or
    remote administrator.

    2000 Server includes programs to run on the client. I don't have it installed but read 2000's TS help.

    It's called Terminal Server. Server allows 2 connections for administrative purposes or you can pay and have however many you pay for.

    Perhaps you can use netmeeting which is installed on XP and 2000 and has remote desktop feature built in. Netmeeting allows any 9x or NT operating system to connect to any other 9x/NT system. This is the only all platform compatable.
