the downstairs computer has 4 monitors.

they want to be able to go upstairs and see EXACTLY the same thing on 4 monitors that they see downstairs!

Assuming the 4 monitors upstairs are capable of the same resolution[s] as the 4 monitors downstairs, just connect both computers to the same gigabit network and use Remote Desktop.

to clarify, we would us the MSTSC /multimon switch right?
AND only Windows 7 ULTIMATE and ENTERPRISE support this?

Win7 Pro/Ultimate/Enterprise can initiate RDP sessions to ANY version of windows with Remote Desktop enabled.

You need to check that box on the Display tab in the Remote Desktop 'Options' of the XP machine, too.  After you check it, go back to the General tab and click the Save button.

I presume on the Experience tab of both machines you have selected LAN (10 Mb or higher).
