What methods are people using to include remote project team members in brainstorming or whiteboarding sessions? Has anyone succesfully found a way to do this using MS Live Meeting or some other screen-sharing tool?

We us GoToMeeting for screensharing in our office, but there was a tool that Smashing Mag mentioned in their newsletter today for collaborative whiteboarding that might be of interest to you. I haven't tried it yet personally, but it is called FlockDraw and is free for use with unlimited users. You can check it out here: http://flockdraw.com/
We just today talked about needing more of this at work today... Has anyone used the "whiteboard" section of WebEx or does GoToMeeting have that capability?
What quality, collaborative whiteboarding tools are there? Able to share, work simultaneously or asynchronously, and also save, export, print?
More resources are much appreciated!

I've successfully used the following setup in several brainstorming sessions:

Windows journal software (Free)
CamStudio screen recording (Free)
