Have you read the documentation on it? Are you using RealVNC or Tight VNC?
Heres the RealVNC documentation.

You do have one of the computers set up as a server, right?

TightVNC is here.

Ok, first tell me what you are trying to do with VNC. Are you trying to connect 2 computers where you can control one from a remote connection? I really need a lot more information on what you have done so far. Problems cannot be diagonsed until you try to do something and it doesnt work. Please explain what you have tried so far( in detail please).

I know it has a steep learning curve but you need to know what you are doing for the best performance.
Heres a microsoft article on making a virtual server on a win 20005 system. You can lear stuff here that might help. Just dont give up if you think its too hard. Once you learn how to do it it doesnt seem hard at all.

The above article can tell you what you can and cannot do with the ntfs file system.

Yeah, I'm trying to connect two computers, (an old one and a new one), so that I can control the old one from the new one. I havn't done much so far, I have no idea what to do. This program is a little intimidating.

I have RealVNC Enterprise 4.2, the server part is on Computer A, and the viewer on Computer B.

I have no idea where to start. Isn't there some kind of complete step by step guide to doing this?

These should help you get started. Once you are setup right you will wonder why you thought it was so hard. It is just a matter of getting the computers to work with VNC. There is a learning curve to this software like any good software.
