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.

To work like PC Anywhere VNC requires a static IP address, or at least you knowing the current dynamic IP. You should have SSL installed on both client and host machines, and use that to connect unless this is over your home LAN, in which such security is not nessesary.
To set up your router, make sure the port for SSL is forwarded to the computer you want to access, and then use SSL to connect to your current IP. Then use the VNC client to connect to (for example) "myserver:1", the number one being the display number (you can have several different displays, each for a different user).
It is best to search for a tutorial on this subject, try googling "VNC SSL Linux" and you're sure to find one.

if you are using anohter linux box it would be pretty easy to set up X forwarding, wich might use a little less bandwith than vnc.
