VNC
 
There's a product from AT&T labs in the UK (and it's freeware), called "VNC." This might be more than you're looking for, but you can use it to control the desktop of another machine on your network (like PCAnywhere).

I use it on my Linux workstation in my home office to shutdown and otherwise remotely control the PC upstairs (a Win2K box with the DSL connection on it).

Go to http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/

My preferred solution to this problem uses samba. There is a modification to the rpc client that issues the same remote shutdown that the MS version shutdown.exe (located on the resource kit) does.

Last I checked, it wasn't located in the regular samba source. You had to get the latest HEAD release. I don't use any of the other HEAD code for production level systems, but the rpcclient seems to be pretty stable for just issuing shutdown commands (just build rpcclient).

Thanks,
