You may also want to check www.tucows.com: there are client x-windows packages you can download and try out for windows on tucows such as WinaXe (I've tried them out and I reckon WinaXe is the best of the ones offered from tucows - the demo version is limited to 30 minutes per connect but at only $90 for the full version it's a bargain and definitely worth upgrading).
However, I use Exceed predominantly at work and if you don't mind the extra cost (it's approx $350) that is an excellent package. My employer bought it for me so I wasn't concerned about the cost

Hello,
use the 'virtual network computig(VNC) client and server to achieve your goal. its really cool and versatile.
vnc can be downloaded from www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/download.html
which is developed by AT&T. njoy
