I know I can use VNC on a Mac running Mac OS 10.4. Is there an inexpensive way to remotely operate my PowerBook using 10.3.9?

Eat your heart out, M.C. Esher - this mess shows an iBook's desktop with Vine on top of an iMac's with Chicken of the VNC.

 

How about a free way? Get Chicken of the VNC (free, sourceforge.net/projects/cotvnc) and install it on the Mac you want to control the PowerBook from, then get Vine Server (aka OSXVNC; free, www.redstonesoftware.com/vnc) and install it on your PowerBook. If both machines are on your home network, Bonjour will automatically put the PowerBook's machine name in Chicken of the VNC's list of servers. Otherwise, find the PowerBook's IP address in its System Preferences' Network pane (select your active connection from the main screen's Show pull-down, then click the TCP/IP tab).
