hmm, I'm beginning to doubt if we're talking about the same :)

I'm talking about using mstsc.exe (MS Terminal Server Client) to log in 
remotely to another machine (for example, you're a user on XP and you 
log in remotely to a machine running Terminal Server - that is, *from* 
XP I just installed to win 2003).

What you're talking about is the other way round: you want to log in *to 
* XP you just installed, which is running as a Terminal Server?

Am I right?

I meant the checkboxes.

Either way, you will probably get better answers on a windows-specific 
mailing list; Samba doesn't have much to do with Terminal Sessions I think.
