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.

I'm trying to login to a Redhat 9.0 Linux box from a Win2K computer. I'm not actually talking about a "Desktop Sharing" mechanism but a complete graphical login.
I've tried Redhat's "Desktop Sharing tool" with success. However, it requires someone to login to the box first and then start the tool for another to share the Desktop.
I'm also aware that there's an application called Putty that facilitates remote login; which is however not graphical but console-based. I've also tried a VNC system by Real VNC. This allows desktop sharing as advertised, however, uses its own authentication system and not that of the Operating System's.
What I want to do specifically is use a Remote Graphical Login client from my Win2k machine, login to the Redhat Box using my username & password (local user for the box) and find all my application, desktop and file settings as though I had directly logged in to it. (Something very similar to Remote Desktop Sharing in Windows)
I'm sorry if this is a little descriptive and hence confusing. Does anybody have any ideas?
