Difference between Remote Automation and DCOM

Can someone provide me with a detail note or a link to explain the clear difference between between RA and DCOM.
I know DCOM is just a model and blah, blah.... It is one step ahead of COM. 2 or more applications on separate machines can talk to another using this concept....
I need some a more practical answer

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,

  DCOM is a pretty large topic to tackle in this little text box.  DCOM is:
"simply a high-level network protocol designed to enable COM-based components to interoperate accross a network."
