VNC or even, Remote Desktop (rdp) will work.

you can google search for VNC and follow their instructions.

as you are running a RPM distro you can also google for YUM installer and set that up on your MDK system. once you have YUM installed and configured for MDK you can type 'yum install vnc' and it will do all of the hard work for you.

once you have VNC server installed this link should help:

http://www.tightvnc.com/doc/man/vncserver.1.html

it has a list of great commands to get a VNC server up and running.

if you are wanting to get access to the exsisting desktop (like the way PCAnyWere works in windows due to windows only having 1 true desktop) then you will also need to install and configure x11vnc and use the following command:

x11vnc -many :0

and that will give you the active desktop, just do not close the konsole and minimize it.

VNC is great for lan use, and i use it often via a VPN to controll the GUI.
