First off, this forum is for posting instructions on how to do stuff, not questions, so please use another forum next time.

Second: there is an application called "VNC" that you can use. It has many incarnations, and the server you need on the Mac can be found here:

Get a VNC client for your PC, and you're good to go.

Mac of the SubGenius! :-)
You can install OSXvnc on the Mac side and use RealVNC or any other VNC client to control the Mac. Apple also has its Apple Remote Desktop, but I haven't had any experience with that yet. At the school I work at, we have a bunch of iMacs and I plan on working with Apple Remote Desktop to manage the other iMacs. I plan on getting that going tomorrow, so I will have some answers for you then...unless someone answers efore I do. :p
