    I have a desktop computer with WinXP home. MS has a remote desktop client for Mac, but I cant connect to my WinXP Home machine.

    If WinXP Home is not supported, what is the next best solution?

    I'm pretty certain it is supported, but not turned on by default. You need to right click on the My Computer icon and select Properties. Then in the window that comes up select the Remote tab and enable the Allow Users to Connect tickbox.

    I believe you need XP Pro for this, unfortunately.
