There's no VNC required to do this. If you have a static IP or some form of
dedicated connection you can determine the IP address of, share your music
directory on the home machine (with proper permissions, passwords and access
controls of course) and mount the share on your work machine. Assuming you
have enough bandwidth (a solid 15-20kb/s is sufficient) you can just play
your files like they were on your local drive. mp3 streaming through the
wonders of Windows sharing! ;)

So if you call our share music$ (the $ just makes it 'hidden'), you can
access it by mapping \\your.ip.at.home\music$ with the appropriate username
and password.

Note that this may be a bad idea if you're running Win9x at home, I don't
know what kind of security you can set up on the shared volume in that.
