Question Setting Windows XP for VPN connection

I have a user at work that wants to set up VPN on her work computer so she can connect from home. Is it possible to make her work XP Pro computer the VPN 'Server'? I used the windows help, but it just shows you how to make a connection for VPN to another server. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

VPN is a private tunnel over the internet to a network. If she wants to work on her PC, setup an RDP (remote desktop) connection.
