I just ran a VNC for the first time, and I must say that it is really cool to be able to control one computer from another. I set my laptop (Windows XP Home) up as the server, and our family desktop (Danmsmall Linux running from ramdisk) as the client over 10/100 ethernet. There is some lag between the client and server screens, but I can run AIM quite well as well as Firefox and, I guess, most other programs. I can't get audio from Winamp to play through the client's speakers, but this may be due to the client OS not supporting sound drivers. I'll try with Windows client later.
