Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

get a dynamic dns provider to give you a domain name like myserver.noip.com (also dyndns.org, dynu.com etc...) and then use whatever remote access method you fancy. personally i'd say juist use ssh might you misht want a full VPN which isn't too hard to set up, e.g. openvpn.net

google for SSH/man ssh, that gives you a way to login to a remote machine from the terminal.
Aslong as you know your IP address it doesn't matter whether your IP is dynamic as you can connect with ssh -l <username> <ip address>. Using a dynamic DNS service just means you can always connected with ssh -l <username> <same_hostname_each_time> and the hostname will update periodically to reflect your new IP address.
Which device are you using to connect to the internet? a router? if so your ip address will probably show as 192.168.1.?
you can find your ip address by
if this is the case you will need to login to your router and forward the port 22 (think this is right for SSH) to the local IP address of the machine you want to connect to.
you can also look into VNC which gives you a remote desktp to work in, or forwarding x through SSH so you can open x applications from a remote machine
