XP Home Edition can't act as an RDP server, accepting connections from
other computers. That requires XP Professional.

It can act as an RDP client, connecting to a computer that's acting as
an RDP server: Start | All Programs | Accessories | Communications |
Remote Desktop Connections.

To get XP Home to act as a server and accept connections, use one of
the variants of VNC:
