Remote Login (Kubuntu 7.x to XP)

When playing around on the login screen on Kubuntu 7.x, I stumbled across a remote login button. How would I set up my windows XP machine to be logged into like that? I'm a mid-level n00b at linux, and very proficient on windows (build, repair, program, etc.) Thank you for any help in advance!

The Ubuntu Wiki does list how to connect to a Ubuntu machine through a Windows machine, but I want to go the other way. I do not, however, want to use VNC. I want to be able to use XDMCP to log into it. I know there is a way, I just don't know what it is. Thank you for trying.

Hmm, tried SSH with Putty? But, I think that only lets you bring specific apps over...

Ya, I messed around with SSH, and it won't do what I want. I wonder if I set my XP machine as a DHCP server with remote desktop running on it it might work... Or maybe I'm just an idiot who is missing something very obvious..


desktop, kubuntu, login, remote, windows, xp
