Remote Desktop through a Linksys wrt54G Router Possible?

Here is what I have:

2 PC's both WIndows XP Pro (Both with internal IP's, but I have do have two external IP's available to use if necessary)
1 Linksys WRT54G Router (NOT USING DHCP)

Currently using GoToMyPC for remote access.  Would like to use Remote Desktop instead is possible.

If I forward the ports in the router to one of the PC's, my understanding is that Gotomypc will no longer function.  The other problem here is that the router port forwarding takes care of only one of two PC's.

If I use the external IP's on these two PC's, they can no longer reach the internet because of the router?   Is there a solution to enable us to access both PC's via remote desktop? Thanks as always!
