If it's in your path, you just type its name
If it's not in your path, you'll have to give the full path to it (IE: /usr/bin/program)
It's the same as if you're sitting at the linux box using the terminal. The only complication would be X programs, in which case you'll need an X server running on the Windows laptop in order to launch them.
What are you trying to run?
