You should contact Microsoft rather than this forum for help.

Since you never got a reply back for this. I am going to answer you by saying Yes you can use Windows XP to remote control a Vista machine if Windows XP is the Pro Version and Windows Vista has Remote Desktop Capability. Check your versions of both, and reply back.

Easiest way: http://www.teamviewer.com/

I use it all the time.

Note: I said easiest, not most secure... So use common sense when using it.
