you'll need to use the RDP hack at the top of this forum. because Windows terminal services (or RDP) does not allow multiple users logged in at the same time. Not even the same user logged in twice. Only Windows Server supports that feature without a hack.

the RDP hack exists for XP too. For example:

Enabling Concurrent Remote Desktop Sessions on Windows XP SP3 – Patched file included The Boiling Mind – thoughts from a techie guy

I strongly suggest that you scan any exe or dll files for viruses before replacing them on your system.
