Well for starters, you mention that both computers has XP PRO, there for you can easily connect to either or by allowing remote access via XP, then it will be the same as if you were sitting in front of the pc you are connecting to.
May want to think about this since you are only dealing with 2 pc's.

There are 3rd party programs that will do the same thing for you, LogMeIn is a great one and does not cost anything.

Hope this helps.
