Free Screen Sharing App?

Any recommendation for a free app to control my PPC (runing Tiger) from my MBP remotely?
Screen Sharing on my network is a snap but that does me no good when I'm away.

Check out TeamViewer. Works between Macs and PCs.

On your PowerPC computer,  -> Sharing -> Remote Desktop -> Access Privileges -> (check) VNC viewers may control screen with password (enter password).

On your MacBook Pro (I'm assuming running Leopard or Snow Leopard), in Finder, Go -> Connect to Server -> Server Address -> "vnc://1.2.3.4" -> Connect, where 1.2.3.4 is the remote IP address of your PowerPC Mac.
