yes you can control sombodys computer from yours with the remote desktop app. But you need to run a separate app as a server on the computer you want to control. I've never gotten it to work, but a feasable free solution is logmein (check it out at www.logmein.com)

it works wonerfully, even with MSN you can start one, very useful when someone you know knows the problem, but there not nextdoor!

If you have XP pro, it comes with everything you need already installed. XP home has the client software, but you are unable to connect to an XP Home machine.

REALVNC may be an option for you. I personally haven't used it, but i have heard great things about it. It looks like there is a free version. http://www.realvnc.com/download.html
