Try google using the following terms.

winxp running remotely

You are going to need to know what operating system the pc has in order to
be able to run it. After XP is installed on the pc you might try.

Good luck,

Remote desktop applications will do this for you. You will need a monitor
(borrow?) to install something on the remote, screenless computer once, but
after that you can operate with no screen.

A free example of remote desktop software:

Thank you all for your help.
Well, if it can't be in any other way I will have to borrow a
monitor.
Thanks again
