I am unable to remote into a Server 2000 box using mstsc. I can remote into other systems at that location just not the server. Any thoughts as to what might have missed on installation?

It is not enabled by default on a 2000 machine. Follow these instructions:

To install Terminal Services in Remote Administration mode on the domain controller, log on to server as an administrator, and then follow these steps:
1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add/Remove Programs.
2. Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
3. After the Windows Components Wizard starts, click to select the Terminal Services check box, and then click Next.

For more information about the subcomponents that are included in Terminal Services, click Details. The following sub-components are displayed:
• Client Creator Files: Windows uses these files to create installation disks for Terminal Services client computers.
• Enable Terminal Services: Windows uses this component to configure the Terminal Services software on your computer.
4. On the Terminal Services Setup page, click Remote Administration mode, and then click Next.

NOTE: You do not need a Terminal Server Client Access License to run Terminal Services in Remote Administration mode. Therefore, Terminal Services Licensing is not configured for the scenario that is described in this article. A maximum of two concurrent connections are automatically allowed on a Terminal server in Remote Administration mode.
5. If you are prompted, insert your original installation media.
6. When the installation is completed, click Finish, and then click Close.

Troubleshooting
If Terminal Services does not run as expected, check the Internet Protocol (IP) address. Issues may occur if you provide an invalid IP address.

If a program does not run as expected, consider the following issues:
• Programs that lock files or dynamic-link library (DLL) files may not run properly. This issue can occur if more than one user is trying to use the same program at the same time.
• Programs that use a computer name or an IP address for identification purposes may not run properly. This issue can occur if more than one user at a time runs the program while using the same information.
