If you just want a console, then use ssh. 9.1 installs it automatically, and it is much more secure than telnet. Then, download putty from http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/
onto your me machine, and use it to connect to your linux box (port 22, ssh).
If you want a full graphical interface, install vnc from YaST2. Then open up a console, and type vncserver :1. This will prompt you for a password to have access to the computer. Then you can open up your me web browser and type in your_ip:5801 and it will give you your remote desktop.
Hope this helps
