Can Terminal Server be setup on my Windows 2K Pro Machine?

I am running Windows 2K Pro and on DSL.  Is it possible for me to setup terminal services and allow Remote Desktop to get to my machine?  If so can you explain the steps I need to take.  Thanks all

The answer is, no.  Windows 2000 Pro includes the TS client but not serving capability.

There are other products (even free ones) that will give you similar or equal functionality.

I have used a product called VNC with excellent results.  The only drawback is that, unlike terminal services, only one connection is allowed at a time.  Other than that, it's pretty good.
