when i go to help y the remote desktop connetion they say
this

In Computer, type a computer name or IP address. The
computer can be a terminal server or it can be a computer
running Windows Professional or Server that has Remote
Desktop enabled and for which you have Remote Desktop
permissions.

so if the computer i want to connect to has windows xp
home edition does this mean i cant use the remote desktop
connection to connect to it?

That's correct. You can not connect to an XP Home box with Remote Desktop. Look at UltraVNC as an
alternative...
