How far can I set the monitor away from the desktop

I want to use the company server 3 or 4 times a month to do some work,but it's very noisy and heavy to be moved and located in a very small space.I can use a cordless keyboard and mouse but is there any other way to use the flat panel monitor far from the server without moving the server to my table each time I want to use it. Using Dell Poweredge 1400SC with Windows NT server Japanese version

Put VNC on it. That way you can leave it where it is.

Load Microsoft NetMeeting and enable Desktop Sharing for the server or use VNC. These are free products.
