Newbie - VNC on Windows XP Pro

I've been using it on Windows XP Home, but not without an occasional problem.
As a server, it works very well, but I have had it reboot spontaneously when
using Tight encoding with TightVNC.  As a client it seems to be a little more
troublesome when connecting to Win9x servers.  Again, the error is nasty, as
it causes the XP system to immediately reboot.  This happens to both of my XP
systems.  I haven't heard of any good cause or solution for this
problem....but I'm still working on it!  :-)

As far as the multiple-user feature, I may not be able to help much.  XP Home
may handle users differently than XP Pro, but I think it's along the same
principle.  You will probably only be able to connect to one user at a time,
as Windows hasn't fully grasped the idea of simultaneous users.  This will
probably not come to fruition until the "Longhorn" release of Windows.  Maybe
someone else will pipe in if I misstated anything!

  I did a search on the archives and got no hits on xp(I tried), does the
  software work on XP and how does it deal or not with the concept of users?
