Here is a guide which should be somewhat similar to what you want, depends on your mac OS.

However, why not just use something like Teamviewer? Its much easier/quicker.
Free TeamViewer Download for Mac

Just download Teamviewer for Mac + Win7 and all you need it the ID and Password and you're connected in seconds.
