If you just need access to the box and/or programs on the linux machine, you can setup a local X-server (like Xming32 on WinXP) and then use an ssh client like PuTTy to access the linux machine and run individual programs.

If you need a complete remote desktop solution, you'll have to setup a VNC server or NX server on the linux box, and then tunnel that over ssh.

You probably don't need to install Gnome, so you can skip step 4.
