I think the answer is NO here. If a remote computer has got terminal server or remote desktop web connection setup , you can use the client http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/tools/rdwebconn.mspx and then access it .

For windows 2000 to be accessed you need to do using third party like tightvnc etc

Windows 2000 has a similar feature called Terminal Services.
This can be installed via Add/Remove Programs
Add/Remove windows components
Enable Terminal Services.
Depending on whether you would like to use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to this machine for administering it or running applications, you will have to select the correct mode.

Hope this helps
Thanks

garyy - I don't see Terminal Services in the list of Windows components. Can you give additional information, please? Some links?

Sorry my mistake, I didn't read your question properly. You have Windows 2000 professional.
Your best bet is to download and install WinVNC from here..http://www.download.com/Virtual-Network-Computing/3000-7240-10187948.html?tag=lst-0-7
It is a remote admin tool. You can remotely run apps and admin the console as if you were on the desktop.
This software is also freeware

Hope this helps
Thanks

Q. What are the requirements for Remote Desktop Web Connection?
A.
- On the server side, you need Internet Information Server 4.0 or later. Windows XP Professional comes with Internet Information Server 5.1 out of the box.
- On the client side, it will only run on the Windows 9x, Windows Millenium Edition (Windows Me), Windows NT (Intel only), and Windows 2000 operating systems using Internet Explorer 4 or later. It is not supported on any other platform.

Does this mean that this is possible on Win2K with IIS 4.0 or later?

As Gary pointed out, the option for Win2K is Terminal Services, which is only available with Win2K server.  When using Win2K server running TS as the host, it is possible to use a web client:
