Apple Remote Desktop Administration from a PC with NAT

It's even easier than that. You don't have to install a server on Leopard.

1. Turn on Screen Sharing in Leopard Preferences -> Sharing and make sure to set a password (under Computer Settings)
2. Set your Mac router to forward all traffic on port 5900 to your Mac
3. Download TightVNC on your PC and run it
4. Enter the IP address of the Mac (the router address, not the local address) and the password you set on your Mac and hit Enter
5. You should be connected

I used to do this in Tiger using Vine Server instead of the built-in Leopard VNC server. I still think Vine Server is faster, but I now have one less process running in the background, so that's a win.
