In Windows 2000, it is not called Remote Desktop.  It is Terminal Services in Administration Mode.  

1. Open the Add/Remove Programs control panel.
2. Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
3. Select Terminal Services and click Next.
4. On the next screen select Remote administration mode.
5. You will need to reboot

For easier remote access. Try downloading VNC Viewer and server from

VNC is by no means a secure solution, and I wouldn't recommend putting it on any server. Terminal Services in administration mode is built into Windows, and the authentication scheme it uses is as secure as if you were logging on to any workstation or server on the network. Terminal Services / Remote Desktop also supports encryption of the data stream, making it difficult for anyone to snoop useful information from the network traffic. VNC, on the other hand, has freely available source code, making it absurdly easy for anyone to monitor network traffic and strip out critical information (such as passwords).
