    See here.

    Basically, enable Apple Remote Desktop in System Preferences...->Sharing on the other Mac, download and install Chicken of the VNC on yours, make sure the routers are set up with the proper forwarding, and you'll be fine.

    I remotely control my parent's Mac (and PC) using CotVNC. No issues, other than slowness.

    Edit: unlike what the guide says, you won't need to install a VNC server. Tiger (OS X 10.4) has one built in, accessible via System Preferences...->Sharing->Apple Remote Desktop.

    Edit 2: this post might also help.
