Windows 2000 professional terminal services

How do I enable? install? the terminal services server component on a windows 2000 professional system?  If you go to Add/Remove Programs and go to Add/Remove Windows Components there is nothing listed for Terminal Services ie: no little check box to install the software I want.  I popped in win2kpro cd and there is a choice to install components off the cd and still there was no Terminal Service choice.  I dont want the client I want to install the server so I can connect to this computer with a linux box running rdesktop, which uses the RDP (remote desktop protocol) to view the desktop.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Only XP has the capability to be connected to remotely.  You can use other software like PCAnywhere installed on the Win2k Pro machine to enable a session.  But I like TightVNC.  And best of all its free.

Here is a link to thier site.  

Good luck

Grade changed from B to A.  I suspect this was a case of the "default B strikes again".  If you feel this grade change is unwarranted, please let me know.  Thanks.
