Several users here have XP and connect from home on the Remote Desktop Connection.  Several of my other users still use 2000 from home and I have them on PCAnywhere to login from home.  

Does Win2K have a built-in way to connect to a remote computer without a third-party app like PC Anywhere?

Thanks for the help.

If the remote computer has terminal server or a remote desktop connection setup, you can connect using remote desktop web connection on a win2k computer http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/rdwebconn.asp or install the remote desktop client app as well. (works on 9x and NT OS's) http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/rdclientdl.asp

If you meant to ask if win2k had a way to ACT as a remote desktop server, the answer is no, not without 3rd party utils.
