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.

I was wondering if it is possible to do some sort of remote desktop work between my FC4 and XP. i want to do remote desktop with my FC4 ( the computer i want to access ) and XP ( the computer i want to access from )
You can use "rdesktop" thats' the command for connecting to windows systems.
Check out the options provided by that command before using it
rdesktop -a 24 -f <your winxp ip>
hope this helps
thanx for the promt reply mate but i am looking for some program that will allow me to access from my XP system. thing is, my linux box is always at home while my XP laptop is with me when im on campus so the only route of access i have is XP to FC4. i dont think that command would work ( think it works vice-versa ) but i will try it.
vnc on both machines would work, so no matter what machine your on you can access the other one.
right click on the my computer icon on XP, choose properties and then remote, then tick allow users access to my machines. then rdesktop in your fedora box would let you access XP
install XRDP http://xrdp.sourceforge.net/ on fedora and then use 'remote desktop' found in the communications part of your accessories folder in the start menu of XP will let you login to your fedora box from XP
my personal favourate remote access to any distro of linux from windows, putty.
hmm............i got xrdp installed but aint sure what to do next
running it gives me :
[root@localhost xrdp]# ./xrdp
./xrdp: error while loading shared libraries: libxrdp.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
anyhow, i got "sesman wait" running. now i assume it will be waiting for contact from the client computer ??
honestly i havn't installed xrdp or used it for ages now, i followed the release pretty closely but i've been side tracked by many other things, best bet would be to join the xrdp mailing list and ask for some help, everyone on there is usally ready to help you out.
Let's ask the question -- if you want to access the FC4 system remotely, why use a remote desktop, and not ssh? I mean, if that's what you are used to, by all means, go for it. But it will be slow, because a lot of information has to be transferred. If the target is a Windows system, you usually don't have a choice, but Linux systems are designed to be accessed remotely. Just run whatever application you need remotely. For graphical apps you'll need X11 running on your XP system, but I guess you know how to do that. It will be so much faster, and also in most cases more secure.
Maybe there's a reason why you can't or don't want to use ssh -- I just wanted to state the obvious just in case it didn't occur to you.

ASCII: use putty
GUI: use NX from http://www.nomachine.com/ or Cygwin/X from http://x.cygwin.com/. NX has the advantage of beeing very fast and responsive even over slower ADSL lines or even fast modems, whereas Cygwin/X also brings you many GNU tools to your XP.
