You can use VNC for this.There are tons of VNC clients/servers available out there.Search for them and u shud be able to get a graphical KDE going.It might be slow though.

Well i guess you can also try virtual private network(i think that is what it is called) though i am not sure if it gives u graphical login.
However i question still bogs me....why would u need a graphical window to do administrative work.You can do everything you want through the command line.
If there is something special u wanted to do...let us know and maybe we can tell you how to do it throught the command line.

I, for one, am not smart enough....well, don't know where all the little files/dirs are to edit stuff.
Like what files to edit to change the default www folder.
How to link a directory like /mnt/molly into the /srv/www folder.
How to install RPM's like pureFTP from command line.

I can't even figure out which file I'm supposed to download for pureFTP. I have suse 9 and kde.

I used DOS some....long time ago....but just have gotten lazy and used to how easy windows is to setup stuff like this.

Configure KDM to allow logins from other IP addresses. Install Cygwin X11 on the Windows box (if that is the machine to export the display to) or use some other session manager under Linux/Unix.

Alternatively (cygwin approach again - its what I use):
Start cygwin from a cygwin shell and do the following:

XWin -multiwindow &
export DISPLAY=localhost:0.0
xhost + <remote machine's IP here or leave blank for all machines to connect>

Log into your remote machine using ssh or similar (the one with the the clients - programs- you want to display on your localmachine) and type:

export DISPLAY=<your local ip - that of the machine you want the display on>:0.0

xterm & (or the name of any other program you want to start)
