Buy server 2008. – Will Feb 7 '11 at 22:04

You can use VNC like Teamviewer or LogMeIn but you will be stuck shadowing the same session. If you want more than one session:

  1. Get a server copy of Windows 2008/2003/2000.
  2. Install the remote desktop services role.
  3. Buy some CALs.

I do want to add that all copies of server allow two sessions before you would have to purchase CALs and install remote desktop services, but again you need a copy of server.
