Tabletop Tool?

I'm not entirely sure if this would go here or the Games and Technology forum. If it belongs there, I apologize.

I'm attempting to start up a campaign with some friends of mine. The problem is that none of us have a kitchen(or some other kind) table large enough for dungeons to be played out on very well. I've been looking in to using a virtual tabletop, but I'm not sure what the best program for our needs is.

What I would like to find is a program that would have two clients connecting to each other, one a GM client, the other would be one to control all the character players. I want to put the players' client on my desktop which is outputted to an HDTV so that 5 people don't have to crowd around one computer monitor. The GM would probably use my wife's laptop.

I want the GM client to be able to move all the pieces on the board, while the characters can only move theirs. Fog would be nice. Not looking like crap would be nice to, but at this point, I may take what I can get.

    Thats all you'll ever need.

    Its got a dice roller, a chat system, a nice interactive tabletop, ways to track initiative, you can make macros for it.

    Now, you would need another computer to run the characters off of, and thats the one you would want to display, but yeah, thats what you want. Maptool.
