The link you have specified is related to Windows 2000 Terminal Services. You are trying to connect to an XP machine and display what is on your own screen so the link above does not apply to your situation. You would need to use something like teamviewer which is free to use. It may also require user interaction on the connecting PC to show your desktop.

Teamviewer - http://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx

Yeah from my experience there are a lot of paid products that have features like you are looking for but teamviewer is free and will do exactly what you require.

I would also support Team viewer which gives various features along with the Remote Desktop Sharing Option while you control it. As this is Windows XP, there is inbuilt software called Net Meeting which you can use. Here also you have to ask someone to acknowledge the request on the Remote XP Machine and grant access for you to take command. Later it will be all yours to manage it.

But if you do not have anyone at remote site to acknowledge your request which is there in TeamViewer and Net Meeting, simply try below :-

This one is paid one, but you only need to have Local Admin Password for the Remote PC and you simply connect to it without any one's support.

Try this one

Which I believe is free to download and use it without installing. Try Stealth version
