In other words, you want to emulate the NT on 95.  Well, there is a resource kit utility called RCMD which allows you to submit commands to a remote NT server.  But the limitation is it doesn't display any graphics.  If you want to see the graphics then you need some kind of client tool supplied by the application.  If not, the only way to do this is to use software such as SoftWindows, Cytrix and Ntrigue.  These are mainly used to emulate windows in UNIX environments.  But they work for 95 and other clients too.  All these are enhancements to NT kernel and they act as they are the OSs.  Very expensive and complicated.  Don't expect them to be at the latest version of NT.
Good luck..

There is software that will do this, but costs money.  It is not part of the operating system.

Windows Terminl Server is the ansewr you are looking for.  Unfortunately, as mentioned earlier, this option causes a bit of money.  This feature will be available in NT 5.0 server, as I am running the client extension for NT 5.0 on a Win 9x machine from home.

There is also talk that the feature will be made available for current NT 4.0 serves.

As far as terminal servers go, there is also another company called Citrix that makes a product called Winframe.
