Remote access / X server with mandrake
This is probably a dumb question (and not phrased correctly) but here goes...
I'm doing a Linux course at college and they say we can use an "X server" such as Cygwin running on our home Windows machine to connect to the college's linux server and do course work. However, since I've installed Mandrake 10.1 on my system, I thought there must be a way of accessing the college's system using that.
All I can find so far is something that looks like it might just give me terminal access.
Can anyone suggest anything?
