If you use a Mac laptop in a Windows network, this maybe of some use. From macwindows.com:
On July 17, 2002 at Macworld Expo today, Microsoft announced the Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) client for Mac OS X, a free download that enables remote connection and control of Windows PCs computers over a network. It lets Macs connect to Terminal Services on NT 4 Terminal Server, Windows 2000 Server, Windows XP clients (for remote help) and Windows .NET serversI have tested this with a dial-up connection to a Windows 2000 Terminal Server. No issues in connecting - just need an IP address or machine name - and I was able to access the full range of programs, ie Outlook, Visio etc. Also found that I could use my 'DAVE' connection at the same time. Yet to try on company LAN, but I can't forsee any problems. Ultimate goal is to use with DSL connection / VPN.
