What I'd like to do is to be able to control another pc box which has no mouse, keyboard or monitor attached via my main pc. VNC is a piece of software that can do this apparently, so that looks like an option, but I was wondering if this facility is available via Windows XP. XP seems to have some remote help software similar to VNC built in, but not having tried it, I've no idea how good it will be. What I'll want to be able to do is run a CD burner and copy files across mostly (it'll be networked to 2 other pcs), with the hard drive being used to store media files. I want the box out of the way so that it's unobtrusive, and only needs access to put a cd in for burning now and again. I'd like to be able to use the box as if I was using it via it's own mouse etc, and see it on my main pc monitor as if I was sitting in front of it. Any ideas appreciated. TIA Gary.
