Default Accessing other acounts via cmd prompt (Win XP)

Hello,
I would like to access other user accounts on my computer and network using the command prompt (Windows XP), without actually loging out of my account and using the Windows GUI. I have the passwords for the other accounts, so there's no cracking or anything.
Thanks...

It's

runas /<options>

then you can either choose

/noprofile
/profile
/env
/netonly
/savecred
/smartcard
/user

so example:

runas /noprofile /user:<hostname>\<username> cmd.exe

If you type runas /user you will get a full explanation of all commands for runas.

Don't think you can get a GUI mode for it.. only command line, but that's enough..

how about logging onto both accounts using the multi user thing in xp. then set up remote assistance on one so you can go on your account and control the whole of the other account.
