You can log into a Windows XP pro machine from any PC running atleast windows 95 or later using remote desktop. Remote Desktop tutorial.


Edit: you should be able to do RA between either computer. But someone needs to be there to accept connection. I helped my mom in another city she has windows Vista and I have XP pro

Post back if it works with your 2 different OS's and we can add this to the free applications forum for others to use.

From what I found it won't work with Vista home edition.
