Remoting into my VM?

I am currently trying to remote desktop from my local machine into my Virtual PC VM (both running on the same box), but I'm getting this error:

"If you're running XP in the VM, be sure and enable ""Allow remote users to connect to this computer"" under the Remote tab in the System control panel.

Also, check the Windows Firewall control panel in the VM and make sure that Remote Desktop is allowed as an exception (or that Windows Firewall is turned off)."

"Does your VM get its own IP address via DHCP? If so, try connecting via the IP address.

Also make sure that your VM is configured properly (i.e. terminal services is running)"
