Is it possible to open a remote terminal session on a Windows XP machine?

Remote desktop is... useable, but I'd like to get a proper remote terminal window open on the Windows XP machine, like I'm able to with Linux. A quick Google points at this, but it looks like it's only for Vista/Server.

"Actually, you can use PsExec to launch a remote shell, rather than just separate commands. Just specify cmd as the program:

psexec \\1.2.3.4 -u user -p pass cmd

although for security reasons, you'll probably want to use SSH. freeSShd (server) and PuTTY (client) are more than adequate."

The closest I've ever found is using a SSH client, but I only dabble in Windows territory!
