I do something similar at my parents house. I have a linux
firewall/gateway machine set up to protect both my parents Windows XP
systems (sorry, can't convert them now) and I have things arranged such
that I can run VNC over SSH to the gateway, then run vncviewer on the
gateway and view my parents desktops. This works out very well if you
run a 1280x1024 desktop, and the windows boxes happen to be at 1024x768.
Make the VNC desktop size on the gateway 1152x864 and you get Windows in
a window on your desktop. Neat and reasonably fast on a cable modem
connection.
