Remote Desktop only permits one user to control the computer at a time. Otherwise, multiple users would be operating the keyboard and mouse simultaneously. That cannot happen (with the default installation of the OS).

Apple's Remote Desktop also does not allow multiple users controlling a Mac.

This has nothing to do with multiple users being able to control the computer at a time. It has to do with features and licensing. You can have multiple users on Windows Server for example (in the simplest form, it's very similar to what you get on Windows Pro). – Bruno Nov 9 '10 at 13:28
@Bruno: Any Windows PC OS (not server) cannot be remotely controlled by two users simultaneously.Nanda is not using Windows Server, he is using Windows XP on a VM. There is a hack, however. See my edited post. – Evan Mulawski Nov 9 '10 at 13:35

See the instructions in the article Enabling Multiple Remote Desktop Sessions in Windows XP Professional.
