    What exactly are you planning to do? Do you want to access windows XP from remote location on ubuntu linux or you want to access ubuntu from remote location on windows XP? Well VNCviewer is used to view the remote computer's screen on your computer. You will need to setup UltraVNC on Windows XP, which will install VNCviewer and VNCserver both. then you can use VNCviewer to see ubuntu from a remote location from Windows.

    I think you are getting it wrongly. My Windows Computer already has Remote Dekstop, I want to setup VNCviewer on my ubuntu computer. I am planning to use both the computer. Sometimes i will use ubuntu and Windows XP will be my remote computer and sometimes i will use Windows XP and ubuntu will be my remote computer. Is it possible or any one can be used as remote computer? Please help...

    You can use both ways as you are planning. But the solution you are thinking that is using the windows XP's default remote dekstop software, that will not work. Ubuntu linux supports its default reomte desktop connection to connect through free softwares like UltraVNC. So you will need to install ultravnc on windows and on ubuntu you need not install anything...
