I am trying to connect my laptop to my desktop, using my laptop as the monitor. The two computers are in the same location (my desk ).

I know that this version of Vista Home Premium has Remote connection installed by default.

But, as far as I can tell, R.D.C cannot be used to connect computers running Windows XP Home Edition - which is what my desktop is.

So, is there an alternative method using cables (which ones ??) to do this ?

The cheapest way to network two PCs is with a twisted pair cable with RJ-45 connectors on both ends. Why not buy a switch as it always comes in handy.
