I've never used VNC before, but after searching I found something  
called [1] Chicken of the VNC, for Mac.  So Chicken of the VNC  
installs onto my Mac, and then I have to install TightVNC or RealVNC  
onto the PC?

If I install TightVNC or RealVNC onto the PC will that allow me to  
access IE 5, 5.5, and 6 on the PC, from my Mac?  The documentation  
for all of these apps is not too great from what I can see without  
installing the actual applications.
