If you don't there are a lot of services that you can also use.
One of them, and the one that I'm using, is called RealVNC.
There's a free version that lets you view any computer on a network. I used that version to get a feel of what it's like.
I got the Personal version, which is $30 and you get to keep it forever, unlike online-based services like GotomyPC which is $20 a month.
If you have XP Pro, I think it'd be better if you use that. Theres a lot of firewall stuff you have to change if you use another service like the one I'm using. I think since Remote Desktop is built right into XP Pro, you probably don;t have to configure much.
It also works on Windows 98, ME, and 2000, but not on XP Home.
Hope it helped

If it is just files you need to be able to access then a FTP server would be a good idea, bullet proof FTP server i think is a good easy program to use but you would need a FTP client to use with that such as bullet proof FTP or flash FXP which is my favourite that said i use that as it works great with my modded xbox.
If you are good with the networking side of things you could just network the two together, which ever way you go i think you would be wise to use volcomssj48's advice and use the VNC server / client as you never really know when you may need it, is an exceptionally useful little application, that said if you are using a firewall (which is advised) you may need to be near both machines when you go to use VNC viewer for the first time as you may need to accept the incoming connection.
Hope this helps.

a crossover cable is advalable at any local pc store and you can have them made for more than 100 ft
This sets up a peer to peer network, basic and simple
