VNC only supports mouse, keyboard and video. I have been reliably informed that Windows Remote Desktop can do remote sound, so if you look here:

http://www.microsoft.com/mac/otherpr...edesktopclient

it has instructions on setting it all up.

Out of interest, what are you trying to pipe through? If it's iTunes, you know you can share your library?

I'd install Parallels & set up a virtualized windows xp environment.... seems like a lot less hassle...

I'd rather not have to install windows xp so this way is easier just need to work the final piece and get the sound set up..

If you are using microsoft remote desktop click the little arrow for advanced options at the prompt for the IP to put it. THen you can decide which resources to leave at the remote computer and which to bring to your mac. Sounds is one of them, as well as disk drives and printers, etc.
