Windows 2000 Pro, unstable and really slow connection.

Honestly, I'd probably pump up the machine (CPU and memory) a little.

For what it's worth, I've run it on C300 and up, always with 128MB of memory
or more, and I've almost never seen much of a performance hit when VNC is
running, and it's always been responsive.

Except for complete redraws, VNC is as fast as local console across my
100baseT network, PII-500MHz or faster machines all around, with at least
384MB of memory, most systems at a full gig.

I know this doesn't help a lot, but I'd strongly suggest looking at changing
that hardware, or the OS itself.
