answered my question after a ton of trial and error.
i got a totally functional remote control screen onto my windows xp box from a macbook 10.5.2 as:
-on the mac goto SystemPreferences -> Sharing
set Screen Sharng = on
set "VNC viewer... with password" = "mypassword"
on the XP box, the RealVNC4.1.2 viewer screen goto Options
goto Color Encoding
set AutoSelect & Full Avaliable Colors = on
set send pointer & keybd events to server & ClipBoard & Accept ClibBoard = on
set dynamic resize & Beep & reconnect = on
assert Defaults Save
start the realVNC scession, you should be asked for the password you setup on the mac. You should be able on the XP box to do your bidding on the mac.
seems the password, no rendering and full color is the difference
