Windows 98 remote support over dial-up?

A certain octogenarian in my family lives in a far-away state and uses an ancient (circa 2001) computer for doing email. It works "just fine" (so she says) and she doesn't want to replace it. Whatever. I swear, next time I'm there, I'm going to sneak in a newer computer and she'll never notice the difference.

"Symantec's pcAnywhere (compatible with Windows 98 up to version 12) supports dial-up networking. it was very popular 'back in the days' and it is still around.

at softpediadotcom you'll get the trial version 12

if 25 MB is too big to download, you may try an older version. here's a download link for version 8 (8MB, 30 days trial). note: this version is not compatible with XP, you'll need 11.5 or better on your side."
