    Either use apple's remote desktop application ($$) or use a VLC solution such as ChickenoftheVNC.

    Enable remote access in system prefs-> Sharing and then type in the IP of your desktop in covnc on your iBook and your desktop should come up.

    ChickenoftheVNC.

    I am getting the message: Unknown authType 1349676916

    Any ideas. It's not letting me connect.

    Are you behind a router? You'll probably have to activate port forwarding...
