You need some instant messaging software like Windows Messenger that you will already have, certainly on your XP machine.

Once you've set these up, you both connect to the net and "sign in" in Messenger. Then one of you clicks a button to start a video conversation.

mooser, there is Yahoo for your conferencing. All you need do is sign up to Yahoo and configure the account for conferencing. Once all of you have Yahoo installed you do pretty much the same as with Messenger to connect to each other.
