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 have installed VNC 4.0 beta on my Linux(Red Hat 9) and Windows XP Pro boxes. I want to be able to access some applications on my Windows box from my Linux box. I have been able to do so running the VNC server from the Windows box. That is until the screen locks. I have it set to lock after 10 minutes. Then the VNC session from my Linux box drops. I have gone through the help menus and looked online for help without any success. Does anyone here know what I can do to make this work? Thanks in advance for your help.
Do you mean the Windows system has froze, and you're trying to fix the problem remotely with VNC, like you would on a Linux system with SSH? I honestly don't think that will work, since in Win, GDI isn't abstracted from the rest of the OS. Even if it was possible, you'd have more luck with some sort of SSH or Telnet server for Win than VNC (like a reverse PuTTY maybe?). Anyhow, I'm probably misintrepreting your query as well. Please be more detailed.
I think your problem may be this:
You installed WinVNC.
You put the start server icon in your Startup folder.
Screensaver lock, you can't get in.
What you need to do it make it start as a service.
Go to start -> programs ->RealVNC -> VNC Server 4 (Service-Mode) -> Register VNC Service. Then either start the service or reboot.
Make sure to take the icon out of your startup group. I did this for a while too until I relized I could install it as a service.
