    You need to permit connections in My Computer, and then just use "Remote Desktop Connection" in the start menu to connect.

    Assuming you have Windows XP or higher, because this feature was only introduced in XP+.

    And, I might be mistaken, but I believe it only works with XP pro.

    I use the remote desktop connection almost daily with Win XP Pro. It's great and works amazingly well. I use it when I'm at other locations & I need to access everything on my business machine here. I also use it on my 266Mhz laptop while I'm in my house, since I can use the power of my desktop whereever I am & don't need to worry about being bogged down by the slowness of an old 266Mhz computer. (which reminds me, time for a new laptop!)
