I believe you're looking for rdesktop.

I don't use Fedora. But basically you need to install rdesktop, which will let you remotely login to XP. It's like XP's remote desktop connection. I think Fedora uses Yum to install packages, so you can probably do yum install rdesktop.

Then run rdesktop, enter the IP address, and you should get a login prompt. If I remember correctly, he can't be logged into the XP machine, and the XP account you use to login must have a password.

rdesktop similiarly like vnc. It connected 2 OS. More over, it's opensource software.

might also do a search for tsclient, which works with rdesktop, and vnc. also, yes it will ask him if he wants to allow the connection and log him out so you can log in. unless you guys have concurrent session working in XP.

There is a way to redirect local drives using rdesktop. See the following link for options.
