Default Remote Assistant

Okay first i best apolagise if i have this in the wrong section, im not sure if it would be put down as software or server administration, let me explain my problem

I have 2 computers but one monitor, what i want to do is use my second computer to run skype without a monitor (so kinder like a dedicated sever). I need to get myself some sort of remote assitant or some kind of server program which allows me to control my second computer via my first computer.

In short, i want to be able to use skype whilst in bed but i dont have a monitor for the p.c in my room. So yeah, i need some sort of program which will allow me to control my second p.c, prefrebly a program which will load up as soon as i boot up my p.c and doesnt ask me to accept any invites to net meeting or anything like that, if you get what i mean?

Again sorry if this is in the wrong section and thanks in advance for any responses i get

Me and my girlfriend (currently long distance >.< ) talk alot on skype and would be nice to be able to lay in bed and still chat ^^

Im going to try out that Remote Desktop Connection thing now, thanks alot Il post again if i get any problems with it. Will it automaticly connect to my 2nd p.c without having to use the 2nd p.c to 'allow access' etc ?

either remote desktop.
or realVNC

remote desktop is already installed on all XP and above systems it just needs enabling.

VNC can be dowloaded.

but i believe remote assistance can only remote control XP pro computers. you can control it "from" a home edition but the destination pc needs to be pro
