Mathew,

The product I use is vnc.  Here are all of the vnc projects out of
freshmeat:

http://freshmeat.net/search/?q=vnc&section=projects

I think you will probably be interested in the OSX version and perhaps
tightvnc for intel platforms, and plain ole vnc for Macs running os 9x.

The OS X version had two issues for me: lack of a proper mouse cursor and
lack of support for classic apps (though it now occurs to me perhaps you
need two vnc servers for a mixed mac environment).

Vnc is not a secure solution, but there are ways to make it so.  I am sure
you will be able to dig up details on how to do this fromthe various
projects.

Mike
