I use PRTG for that it is free but it is limited to only 3 monitors.

You could also use MRTG which is totally free but this is much harder to setup.

for both you need snmp on the client.

Prtg you can install anywhere and access anywhere as its browser based.

Yes if they have the snmp service installed (its an xp addon) then its easy.
You can even generate reports monthly with prtg or weekly whatever you want.
