I have an old PC and would like to setup a Linux build on it to backup my vista data, and run remote applications on.
I would like to be able to access the linux desktop from my vista system in a window, as I am using my two screens on my newer system and would like to use the same keyboard and mouse when using the linux.
Two questions really:
1. What would be the best linux distro for this, I am thinking ubuntu server (as I have the CD) or Suse
2. How would I connect to the desktop, browser would be good, or is VNC a better option or is there a better option?
Thanks in advance for any help
