Default Remote Desktop in Windows 2000 Professional

I have a W2K Pro computer that I want to remote desktop into. I know in W2K Server you need to install Terminal Services to remote into it. How do I configure W2K Pro so that I may remote desktop into it?

I know people are sick of this but it needs to be said

A huge security threat has been found in all Window Versions. Microsoft recommends no one using remote desktop till they can fix the error. XP has already been patched but Win2K is discontinued so it was never patched. This makes using remote desktop very dangerious on a Win2K machine.
