TeamViewer is a remote access solution, but it does not create a new session for the remote user. – Stephen Jennings Jul 26 '10 at 6:15

Mac OS X doesn't have a native Terminal Services-like solution.

This page claims to have a solution to let multiple people use the Mac simultaneously. It requires people to already be logged in with Fast User Switching, then allows other users to VNC into their hidden sessions. I haven't tested this out and the website has no mention of Leopard or Snow Leopard, so I don't know for sure how well it works.
