The reason that you can't get RWW working on a Mac (or on any other
non-Internet Explorer browser for that matter) is that the RWW interface
for remotely connecting to a workstation is built on an ActiveX control,
and ActiveX is only supported in Internet Explorer. So if you try to use
FilreFox or some other non-IE browser on Windows, you won't get it to
run, nor will you be able to use that feature on a Mac or a Linux
workstation.

Thanks partekitsolutions :) for the points and that's how i use XP on my FEDORA because most of the popular application supports only IE. Good luck.
