Yes, and No...
On the crappy machine you run a normal vncserver,
on you "keyboard/mouse" machine you run win2vnc (a sourceforge project)
(or x2vnc google yourself)... This will give you what you where thinking
of... But that is not necessarily what you want! Namely and programs shown
on the crappy machine also RUN on the crappy machine....
