I have a Windows XP box running software that several people need access to at one time. The software can only be ran on Windows XP so how can I have multiple concurrent connections to it?

You can have up to 5 connections to XP Home and 10 to XP pro.  If you need more you need Server.  What kind of software are you trying to use that won't work on Server?

I should have mentioned that it can't be shared out so I need some sort of remote software that will allow multiple instances. The software is ACCPAC EDI software that has been heavily customized. I would rather have it one a W2k3 server but it would be a very big project.

I don't think you can do multiple independent remote logins to Windows XP.  If user A logs in the local user will be disabled (not loged out but switch user), then if user B logs in the same will happen to user A

Most third party apps will allow you to cotrol the active session or start a new session, but not more than one at a time.
