    linux / windows question

    I'm planning to build a linux server, for my network. I plan to use Mandrake Linux 9.0. The problem will be that the linux box wont be in my computer room (err its loaded with computers already) and i'd like to be able to manage what its doing (sort of like the remote desktop with windows xp) on my windows 2k laptop.

    Basically I'd like to be able to be on my windows 2k laptop and actually see what my linux box is seeing, as if I was actually on the linux box, and control whats going on with it, etc, etc. If anyone has any suggestions, they would be appreciated.

    Note: I dont mind changing to another linux distro if I absolutely have to, so I suppose it doesnt really matter that I have mandrake or not.

    I haven't heard of a remote administration tool for linux on windows machines. But there's a tool called WinaXe which enables access to different operating systems. I'm not sure if that would be of use to you.

    Just use SSH. You can even have remote X sessions.
