Step 1: What Do You Need?
I am using a broken old Dell Inspiron 6000 with windows XP. Vista works too. To my knowledge all versions of Mac OS X work (I only have leopard)
You will also need software wise:
is your on an pc download and install WAMP
if on a mac download and install MAMP
if on linux install LAMP
if on a pc download and install tightvnc and start the tightvnc server
if on a mac go to system prefs -> sharing -> and turn on screen sharing
if on linux find and install any vnc software if not already installed

Step 5: (NEW!) How to add FTP access to your server.
-Download and install Filezilla
-go through the install and leave all of the defaults (unless you have IT knowledge)
-If everything went okay then when it is launched you will get a notice on the last line that says "Logged On"
-now click edit -> users
-in the far right box click add and fill in the desired name(repeat as necessary to add as many users as you want)
-Make sure "Enable Account" is checked off and you check off password and fill in an appropriate one
-Next go to the far left column and click shared folders and add an appropriate folder(s) or drive(s)
-If the computer that you are going to FTP from is a pc download Filezilla's FTP client or if on a mac, I highly recommend, Cyberduck its easy and free
-(I have been having problems accessing it externally) but put in the local ip of your pc and your good to go
