Just enable Remote Desktop form the System properties on the virtual guest, assuming they are XP/Vista/Win2k3/Win2k8 guests.

You can connect then.

If you're using VMWare Workstation you can use the Remote Display option on the VM and use a VNC client to connect.

Also, you can specify the change in group policy to apply, to make any new clients have the setting by default, assuming you are connecting into AD of course.
