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.

what do you want to do on your home pc? i'm just learning some of this stuff myself, but i'm you can use ssh to make a connection. but are you wanting to access files? you would need you configure Samba for file sharing. thats another topic. if you want to view your home pc screen (don't know why you'd need to) you could VNC through a ssh tunnel. don't ask me how to do it. i've only been studying this stuff for a couple weeks. but i've been reading about whats possible.
I want to be able to treat my PC as I would my Unix computer. I want to be able to scp files between the two. I want ssh type access to it. I want text based login's, like a remote command prompt of some sort.
Cmon now, don't you think I've already thought of that
I already have a Unux comp (my FreeBSD machine) No reason to dual boot my PC.
Cygwin may allow something close to what you're looking for.
Yes, I have cygwin, and I've read the documentation on it. However, setting up openssh, sshd, and such, is not playing nice. I get alot of errors. The problem is almost all documentation on using cygwin refers to XP rather than Vista. However, I will try a few new things with Cygwin when I get back home. If I find any new information, I will post yet again.
