Default Network Setups need help!

Me and my friend are trying to connect our computers to share files etc. Only one problem , he lives in northcarolina and im in west virginia. Is it possible to create a network with him?

We both have broadband cable. He has windows Home edition i have Xp professional. If anyone has any idea how to do this please post. i have tried to use network set up wizard but im not very sure how to make the computers connect. When i do remote desktop connection it says person may not have that enabled or is too busy to accept anything? Once again anyones help would be appreciated.

hey frens hope this could help...

u can install a "PC anywhere" software, and u can
connect him using that software through dial Up connection. u can download it maybe as trial version, but there are some sites that offer cracks for it... ( if u dont want to buy c",) )
