Setting up Remote Administration

  Leepy Lee 19:33 29 Dec 2005

I have two PCs. The older 'spare' one running W98SE and the main one running XP home.

I want to be able to control the old one from the XP machine via a LAN connection. The old PC will not have a monitor, mouse or keyboard connected.

Is this possible and if so, how is it achieved?

I have tried setting up remote administration but get lost on the technicalities of what I'm supposed to be doing.

Are there any step by step explanations anywhere?
