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.

Windows has a program called Remote Desktop Connection that allows you to connect to another computer and work remotely on that computer. As far as I know this only works Windows-to-Windows. Is there any way to make this work Windows-to-Linux? I noticed I have a program called krdc that is a similar thing for Linux (I assume). Basically, is there any way to use a Windows computer with RDC installed to log onto a Linux computer? The reason I ask is I would like to use my linux computer at home from my work which uses windows computers... Thanks a bunch!
I thought of VNC also, but I am unable to install programs on my work computer. Is there any way to do this without installing programs on the Windows computer? Maybe a program for Linux that uses the windows protocol? Thanks again for the help!
It is my understanding that rdesktop works for Linux-to-Windows, but not for Windows-to-Linux. Maybe this impossible; I just want to use windows as little as possible (since i feel exteme dislike for the os). Again, thanks for the help...
