I've done VPN via a dial up connection. It was painfully slow, but worked nonetheless.

ADSL 1m is not a screaming connection but should get you connected provided the ISP doesn't block any VPN ports.

Viewing network folders/files, etc. should be ok. If you're doing a VPN only to do remote desktop, that's probably not ideal. Something like TeamViewer.com would serve your purpose better.
