Cannot Remote Desktop into Windows 2000 machine


I am trying to RDP into a Windows 2000 machine from an XP machine, but it is not allowing me to.  I have installed the rdp software from Microsoft and since then I am able to access RDP from the Start menu in Win2K, and I am able to RDP to another machine, but not able to remote into it.  Please let me know what I can do?
