Remote access - sharing the user's session

I'm accustomed to being able to remote into a user's PC for support and sharing the desktop session with the user - they can show me what they're dealing with and I can show them how to resolve the issue. I did this routinely on Windows 2000 workstations which were clients on a Windows 2000 Server Active Directory domain. What's happened to this functionality in Windows XP?? I'm running Remote Desktop Connection on XP Pro and connecting to another XP Pro PC over a Windows 2003 Active Directory domain (via TCP/IP obviously). Am I correct that there's some concealed switch in Group Policy I need to activate, or am I reduced to waiting for a Remote Assistance Invitation?

I'd appreciate any feedback...
