Angry thin client

I just purchased a second hand HP CompaqT5000 thin client with WindowsXP Pro embedded and Citrix Program Neighbourhood and Remote Desktop Connection installed.
I would like to connect the thin client to a PC that is running Windows Xp Home.Can someone please advise how to set it up?
Any assistance is greatly appreciated

first you need to make sure they both have network cards
then, if you're connecting them directly (not through a router or hub) you will need a crossover cable.

if you're connecting them through a router, any cat5 cable should work.

when you connect teh computers, XP home should have automatically configured the network settings, with the workgroup as MSHOME. you might have to configure Citrix to work in MSHOME also. I am not familiar with Citrix so I can't tell you how to configure that.
