How do I remotely access a Windows 2000 desktop?

How do I remotely access a Windows 2000 desktop? I'd like to be able to run programs on desktop remotely.
One of the best ways to do remote access to a computer without shelling out cash is through a system called VNC, or Virtual Network Computing. ( http://www.realvnc.com/). VNC is also cross-platform; it'll work from or to any Windows, Linux or Solaris machine and is also extremely compact and robust. I use this to do remote access to Windows 2000 machines that aren't servers and don't have Terminal Services Administration running.
