you could use a DDNS (dynamic DNS) service such as www.no-ip.com to give your network a 'name' on the internet (example, mine is : http://tylerhome.myvnc.com), along with Gavin's suggestion on forwarding the ports used for RDC.
Personally, I use SSH to connect to my desktop, then have a tunnel to a VNC (another remote desktop utility) connection, so that it is entirely encrypted over the internet. There's a good how-to on that setup at:
also, there isn't really a 'safe' method of doing this. anytime you have an open port in your firewall/router, it is a possibility that someone could use it for malicious purposes. The fact that it is a home system, with a dynamic address, helps to make it less of a risk, but it is not inherently risk-free.
hope I haven't confused you too much
