Like remote desktop connection stuff?

I presume you're not meaning both PC's using the same screen.

VNC does just this!!

Unlike RDP, this will allow you to see the mouse and everything that is happening live from the remote computer. Windows XP locks the computer.

You could also check out Hamachi, it's a simliar proggie to VNC. I also heard that RealVNC is quite good too.
