Default Remote desktop connection Windows 7 to XP?

I'm doing some research on this myself but I was just wondering what everyone here knows about remote desktop connection. In my house there are two desktops (1 Windows 7 and 1 Windows XP) and two laptops (1 Windows 7 and 1 Windows Vista). I have never used remote connection before but from what I understand it means I can control one PC using another. I was wondering it if it possible to use this feature accross different versions of Windows and also in general how I set it up (and how easy it is to do this). Thanks for any advice.

DESKTOP: Custom Build - HAF 932: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit / Samsung 2433 24" LCD 1920x1200/ 6144 MB RAM DDR3 1600MHz Corsair Dominator/ XFX GTX 260 XXX Edition 896MB/ Intel Core i7 950 @ 4.01GHz/ 500GB Sata II 7200 RPM & 320GB 7200RPM/ 700W Jeantech Storm Modular PSU

Under Control Panel\System and Security\System (in Windows 7 and Vista) there should be an option for "Remote Settings". Click on it and you will see the settings available for this. Pretty easy to configure... XP should be something similar as well. You can also use "Windows Key + Pause Key" instead of "Control Panel\System and Security\System" to get to the right spot.

But I'm trying, Ringo. I'm trying real hard... to be the Shepherd.

I was having trouble getting mine to work, so i went to logmein.com and have all my other computers set up to it. You download a lightweight program and as long as the other computers are on you can access them. I am on the trial and i love it, but soon i will have to pay
