Here's the answer:
Can I connect to the console session remotly?
Yes! If you use the Windows Server 2003 client you can write <SERVERNAME>
/console in the computer name box.
If you are using the Windows XP Remote Desktop client you will have to start
the Remote Desktop client from a command prompt by writing mstsc /console
/v:servername. Where mstsc is located depends on where you installed it, but
it's usually in "%programfiles%/remote desktop" or "%systemroot%/system32"
