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.

Has anyone come across how to use remote desktop agent to communicate from windows to a linux system, like you would communicate from a windows system to a windows server using something like Dameware NT Utils? I am trying to see if you can log on to a linux system from windows using a remote agent, cause i managed to get linux rdesktop to log onto a windows system.
VMWare is a software that enables you to create one or more Virtual machines over your operating system. I has nothing to deal with Remote Desktop Connection. But, yes you should try it once, it's a good software.
Do we have any any package that works as a Terminal Server/Client on Linux similar to that in Windows XP?
LTSP is an add-on package for Linux that allows you to connect lots of low-powered thin client terminals to a Linux server. Applications typically run on the server, and accept input and display their output on the thin client display.
If you want a Client that runs on Linux and will connedct to XP, or Win terminal services check rdesktop http://www.rdesktop.org/
