Connecting to Computer Remotely

I'm running Mandrake 9.1 and i want to be ablet o conenct to my XP box over the network. What do i have to do to use "Remote Desktop Connection" or VNC or TightVNC? For instance, i open up Remote Desktop Connection and it says to enter address and display number for the computer i want to connect to. What kind of address is that? and do i just type 0 for display number? As well, i'll open up vnc and it asks for address, display number, and password. Once again which address, and what type of password is it wanting? User password? Administrator Password? If anyone can help me out here, that would be awesome.

The address is most probably the ip-address of your target machine.
