"You can do this using any one of the numerous VNC programs. I prefer UltraVNC:

UltraVNC will be great on the Windows side, and for setting up the Macs, these directions should help:

They will both play nicely with each other. You will be able to connect from Mac to Windows and vice versa."

If it was for non-commercial use I'd recommend LogMeIn Free, which is easier to setup and administer than VNC - I mostly use TightVNC or UltraVNC.

"Depending on your network setup and your needs, you can use the built-in VNC as stated above, but you can also use free or non free remote access softwares like Yuuguu or SparkAngels.
