The title says it all! Basically I have a comp running XP pro and I want to be able to work locally on one user account, with some kind of remote access server running on another XP user account so that the remote account and the local account can be used simultaniously. I know that this cannot be done with XP Pro remote desktop and could be by Windows Server 2003 remote desktop, but i need an alternate solution to make this happen.

Thanks!

Are you saying you want two people to be doing different things at the same time on the one machine?

Put "two concurrent users XP" without the quotes into Google. It gives you several sites that explain it.

ah ok i see, didn't have the right wording on my query lol... although all i'm seeing is SP2 resolutions and the person running the server doesn't really want to upgrade to SP2, is there any way to do this without it?

No, not without expensive software. The OS itself has to be able to concurrently multitask. That can be simulated, but is not easy.
Why not upgrade to SP2?
