How to configure remote desktop to work between two Win2k Professional machines

I want to configure a remote desktop to work between two Win2k Pro machines. I can use remote desktop between Win2k Pro and the Terminal Server with no trouble. How can I set this up?

Windows 2000 Professional doesn't support remote desktop in server mode, only as a client. However, there is a very good way to do remote-desktop access in Win2K Pro by using a third-party program called VNC, which some people prefer to Remote Desktop: http://www.realvnc.com/.
