1&3: Dedicated servers stay on when you're gone. You just have to have the server console open, pretty much.
2: Rcon gives you access to server commands from inside the game, so you can switch the server map, change the settings etc. without having to minimize your game. Just type, for example: /rcon map ffa_deathstar

1)I don't know what you mean but a dedicated server should definatly work on the net as with a server ran with you on it is possible it will not show up on the list of servers if that is what you are trying to do.
2)click here: http://www.jk2files.com/file.stuff?body=FAQ#17
3)when you setup your server you must run a server i recommend a dedicated on but what ever you leave you pc on and go away if you want to shut it down then the only way is to pay for one and for that i recommend www.jediservers.com

You can run a dedicated server and not be there, just leave the window open that appears, you can see whats going on in the server through the text in the window.
To join your dedicated server start the game, click join server and select the LAN option. You should see your server there.
You can come and go as you please so long as you leave the console window open on your desktop, as can other players who find it using the internet option.
That is right but to make a server apear on the list it is best to have dsl so then you can tell people it rather than getting them to search on the list.
A lan i think is ment for to computers in your house to battle against each other with internet connection sharing setup between them both.
I play with my bro somtimes, Mine and his computer are both connected and i make the server then he joins by going into local then joining it, We play ctf with some bots on it!
You can make a dedicated server by changing it on the creat server menu if you want to turn your pc off when you have a server running you must pay for one it's the only other alternative unless you leave a dedicated server on your pc and join when ever you wish you can still join in with there talks in the little window with yellow text in.

New question and I think you, Kylek can answer this.
If I were to buy a half decent mid-range PC, say around a PIII 800 cpu with about 256 ram....
Could I make that run as a server connected to my main PC?
Will I be able to access the PC without needing a second monitor (a bit pressed for space you see) like I would when someone asks me to do remote assistance?
Since you have a home network maybe you could answer this little question for me.
Thanks up front
You need to set up internet connection sharing and enable it on the start menu then open jk2 and creat a server on any pc unless only one of them has the internet in which case the one with the net can only creat the server.
I don't know how to set it up because my bro did it and beleive me he spent ages doing it.

aidy1972uk, if you want to run a server, I highly recommend you getting a pc with more memory than 256MB. 512MB will suffice, but it is recommended to have at leat 1GB. For instance if you happened to be in the server with other users connected, they will at times experience lag when there is a heavy battle ensuing. Not the time of connection lag that you may be thinkging, but with performace lag. At least in my experience with running servers it has been like that. Even when I had 512MB it still happened. However when I upgraded to 1GB, those problems were gone. Even if you are running a game server on your home network, I still recommend more than 256MB of ram.
As for your accessing the 2nd pc with the same monitor. It is possible, but you will need a switch (forgot the correct name). What you could do is connect it to the server pc, boot it up, get your server running, then disconnect it. Then connect it back to your other computer and use it that way.
Hope this helps in anyway.
