IS this because XP Pro and Windows 7 can't communicate between each other?
Windows 7 Home Premium does not have the ability to host a remote desktop session. They are able to use the client piece only. So something like LogMeIn Express, as someone else suggested maybe the best option. They will need Windows 7 Pro, Enterprise, or Ultimate in order for you to connect to their machine using Remote Desktop.
