Does Remote Desktop work between workstations?

Remote Desktop connection works fine for XP Pro workstation to a server. What do you have to do to make it work workstation to workstation?
Windows XP Home doesn't support inbound Remote Desktop connections; only Windows XP Professional does. However, that doesn't mean it's impossible, just that you can't do it with Microsoft's own tools in this particular case. There is a very good freeware remote-desktop system called VNC that not only runs on any version of Windows, but on just about every other operating system. Try it.
