Most Linuxes have a utility called rdesktop that can be installed through the terminal. What this enables us to do is use Remote Desktop Connection from a Linux computer to any Windows computer and vice versa. I found this very useful because all Windows XP Pro SP2 computers have this RDC software installed. For PCs from Windows 95 and up all you have to do is download the software from the Microsoft website. The good thing about this again is that it is already there so you don't have to download anything if you have Windows XP Pro SP2 and all you need is the remote computer's IP address as opposed to having to download the logmein software on it.
