For help with XP Remote Assistance go to "Start | Help and Support" and search on "remote
assistance" (without the quotes). Both you and the other person must be running XP Pro or XP Home.

Alternatively if your running XP Pro and want someone to access/control your PC using Remote Desktop
look at this page...

If your running XP Home look at using UltraVNC with its encryption plug-in...

Is it true both parties must be running XP Pro to use Remote Assistance? I'm
running Pro and asking the other party (who's running XP Home) to view my
desktop/system. I think I already know the answer to this <g>.

Both users must be running XP (Home or Pro) or Windows 2003.
