Remote Desktop with XP Home Edition

I have a home network and all computers have XP Home Edition. Is there any
way I can use Remote Desktop to control one from another? I am able to do it
using Remote Assistance; it seems illogical and inconvenient that I am not
able to do it through Remote Desktop.

Thanks,

Daniel

If you use VNC over the public internet I suggest you use the encryption plug-in and/or run VNC
through a SSH or VPN tunnel for security...
