Remote Web Administration

I recently built this very nice dual-opteron server. Ofcoarse I chose Fedora Core 3 as the main operating system. I played with several other reaching my decision upon Fedora. Anyways i came across a feature that i really liked in suse enterprise 9. It had a remote web administration. Where it was like a remote xserver that ran in your browser. Fedora lacks this feature and i was wondering if there are any software programs that would allow me to access my linux box from a web browser. I have tried out webmin and didn't much care for it. Please Help!!!

choosing fedora as a server OS is not good idea at all.
u may want to try tightvnc ( ). i myself prefer only ssh (console). i dont install X on server side, it is not necessary. also it can cause security troubles.

good luck.

I've heard of that before and have tried out the software client and I didn't even look for the java version one thats for pointing that link out because it just threw it in my face. Also only reason i'm using Fedora OS because i'm new to linux. All I needed to see was something easy to use and graphical but I only have X enabled when administering the server then I stop it. SSH is also a neat package that allows me to easily do this remotly. Could you explain to me why I should be using it and maby tell me of something else.
