Thats correct, box B is XP Home, which doesn't have the ability to accept standard Remote Desktop sessions.
You can send Remote Assistance invitations from your XP Home box, which gives similar functionality, but its not nearly as good as Remote Desktop.
Whenever I need remote access into an XP Home box, I usually set up VNC. It is similar to Remote Desktop, lets you log into the box remotely and do what you need to do. There are lots of VNC products out there, my favorite is UltraVNC.
