Can I remotely control Windows 9x machines on my home network?

I have a home network running a Windows 2000 Advanced Server (as a workstation), 3 Windows 98SE and 1 Windows 95B machines. I would like to be able to access the 9x machines from the 2K machine utilizing remote desktop, or some other such method, so that I may run programs on those machines from my workstation. Is there any built in, or add-on method inherent to Windows for these 9x machines to be remotely controlled?
No built in capability. You'll need to use a third party product like Symantec PCAnywhere.
