By design you can't use Remote Desktop but you could use Remote
Assistance. Neither XP Home or Vista Home can act as a Remote Desktop
host. Go to "Help and Support" and search on the string 'remote
assistance' for help. As an alternative look at TeamViewer.

Yes. And you don't even need to install anything on the client machine....
