Install a ssh client on your windows box, and use that. You will also need to make sure that the sshd is listening on you linux server.

I'm not sure what kind of monkey wrench your router and dhcp are going to throw into the works, but reading the ssh docs should help you out.

The router is won't make a difference (I use one). But having a static address for the Linux box makes life easier. By default the Linksys routers start DHCP address at 100, so just assign the RH box a lower # (for instance my servers start at 192.168.1.5 and go up sequentially).

EDIT: One of these days I will remember to spell check before I submit.

You can get a GUI to. You need to get your self an X server for windows. Humming bird eXceed for example. Although that one is commercial you can get one for free.
Then set the "DISPLAY" env. variable to the ip adress of the machine that the stuff is supossed be displayed upon.

You can also use a VNC viewer application. Redhat has the vncserver included usually. It is fairly easy to use. I believe one such client app is the "WinVNC". I have not actually used that one, but I have heard about it. You can even set it up in reverse if you want. (Windows desktop on your Redhat machine).

do a search on google for "vnc viewer windows", I came up with the following link.

try this from

root# vncserver :1 -name test -geometry 800x600

if it is installed as it does i think by default with 8 or go to vnc site

http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/index.html

make sure you read this i did it and it works great

http://www.realvnc.com/rpm-note.html

then download and install the windows client

its free not perfect so you may have to tweek it

You can even use the java applet through a web browser, then you don't have to install anything on your windows system. I believe it is on port 5901 if your vncserver is running on ":1", 5902 if your running on ":2", etc...

i.e.
http://<linuxip>:5901/

It may be 5801 also, check the documentation for vnc and you should be able to find it. They have a mailing list that you can join as well. It is pretty informative.
