I know is already there.
This is what I need to do - or help set up.

 From the front office to the back of the school - the admin needs to be 
able to control the screen - the mouse, point and click, etc, to show 
the end user how to do, or how to fix something. Because of some out of 
date district rules we cant install other software on the computers so, 
I thought we could do it via the browser.

This is what I have now.

Under Remote Desktop Preferences I have
   Allow other users to view your desktop
   Allow other users to control your desktop
   Ask you for confirmation
   Require the user to enter this password.

As I understand it, you have to have tightvncserver to have a shared 
session. Unless Im misunderstanding, I want a shared session - one that 
I and the teacher both share. Right?

All the desktops have Gnome.

I want to access the Ubuntu desktops with both Ubuntu and Windows XP 
clients via a browser.
