yes you can.  just go to Start | Run, type in mstsc and hit OK.  Then enter the address of the WIn2k server you are trying to connect to.

If memory serves me correctly, you also have to enable RDP on the WIn2k server box by going to control panel, add/remove programs, add/remove windows components, then select the Terminal Services option.  See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306624 for more info.

Yes.  Install Terminal Services in Remote Administration Mode on the server and install the Remote Desktop Client on the workstation.

Yes, if I remember correctly, you need to download and install the RDP software. Here is a link that I belive will work:

Or, now we use RealVNC, which is free.
