Your best bet for interactive NT applications is some sort of Windows Terminal
Server + Citrix Winframe Client combination.  I was never able to get the 
winframe client to install under openbsd (there's only a linux version, and
the emul stuff just crashed, though I didn't play with it extensively), but
I was able to run it remotely off a neighbor's linux box.
