    Hi, Um.

    I am looking for a remote desktop thingy that:

    Allows a Mac to be the client and Windows XP home to be the host/server

    Is free (as in totally free, no trials)

    Can run on LAN and NOT internet

    Has a lag of less than 200ms

    Can update at, say, 30 FPS or better.

    I am trying to make it so I can play Maplestory on my mom's computer and will use OS X on my macbook.

    I can't use parallels or VMWare, maplestory runs like at 5 FPS.

    Ah, I misread you. Get VNC for it, I used to use UltraVNC. Configure that all up and you should be fine.

    As per Mac adverts, MS is really crap to have so many versions. I use XP Pro luckily and am extremely happy with RDC. I've tried VNC before and the refresh rate is appalling. Sorry I have no advice.
