Having given my first response - I stand by it (no supported method) - but I
did state it was possible for Windows XP using a 'hack' and files from the
beta of SP2.
Have you even searched for a solution on your own?
My first search for "concurrent remote desktop Vista" came up with hacks
similar to those for XP - but 'unsupported' and "risky" are still part of
the equation. After all you are replacing system files with those whose
contents - you do not know where they came from.
