easy way or hard way?

easy way:

both of you sign up for a Windows Live Messenger account, they can "request remote assistance" using it

hard way:
as long as they have XP Pro you can enable the remote desktop connection...

if you go this route, you need to know how to get to their system on port 3389 which can be tricky if they're behind a router (you'll have to forward port 3389 to the system you want to be able to control) - then, determine their actual ip from the service using

if they're at a university and have a public address assigned dynamically its pretty easy to get the ip, just punch that into the xp remote desktop program

of course there are a whole lot more details in there, but i'm assuming you know a little bit about computers and are using windows

log me in...

is a good app. It has a free version that has an app that must be installed on the remote system. They also have trial that can be used for emergencies that just requires they go to a webpage and enter a pre-specified code.
