Currently Being ModeratedMar 18, 2011 7:52 AM (in response to Rinsler)If you Mac Pro has a mini display port out, then the iMac can be used as a monior for the Mac Pro. This is from the apples support document:
To use a 27-inch iMac in Target Display mode with another computer as the source:
1. Make sure both computers are turned on and awake.
2. Connect a male-to-male Mini DisplayPort cable to the Mini DisplayPort on each computer. The 27-inch iMac will enter Target Display mode and display content from the source computer.
Note: If you are connecting two 27-inch iMacs, connect a Mini DisplayPort cable to each computer and press Command + F2 on the 27-inch iMac keyboard that you will use as an external display.
3. To leave Target Display mode, press Command + F2 on the keyboard of the 27-inch iMac that is in Target Display mode. To return to Target Display mode, press Command + F2 again.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 18, 2011 10:28 AM (in response to Rinsler)You could do this by using remote control software such as one of the flavors of VNC to take control of your MP. Such an application could probably work in Spaces. But you cannot do this via the direct input through the DisplayPort.
