    You can try rdesktop. If it's not installed on your computer, download it from http://www.rdesktop.org/, That's the Linux client. The server has to be activated in XP's System Properties (or whatever it's called...). I don't hink it's available in XP Home, though.
    You could also install VNC from http://www.realvnc.org/.
