Google for VNC. It's free, and works on any OS.

There is a Mac client called Chicken of the VNC. I've not used a Mac VNC server but I think it's possible.
It's a stunner. You need to open a port in your firewall, I think it's 6346 of the top of my head, but google to check.

I use the vnc server on my g5 and it works a treat the port that need to be open is 5900 for the client to connect (make sure you route it though the firewall/router as well) or port 5800 which is the java component and will let you connect though a browser btw its important to know your ip address
