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.

What is it you're asking? You want to make your Linux desktop look like your Windows one? You want to have the same things on your desktop under both systems? You want to access the physical files on your Windows desktop from within Linux? Please, a little more specificity. Thanks.
What I mean is that when I was not a linux user I saw one of these guys who was on linux have a seperate window open in which he had his windows desktop. Basically it was like any other window open on his linux desktop and it had windows running in it.
Hope i have clarifed my question
Windows XP is Windows NT. Microsoft plays name games but Windows 2000 is NT 5.0 and XP is NT 5.1, in the same line as NT 4.0, which was actually called NT 4.0. *g* I don't really know anything about rdesktop - I just remembered a guy telling me about it and found the link. I don't see why it wouldn't work, though. What was the other problem? Mandrake? Should be fine there, too.
