putty is a nice program which will allow you to ssh your linux school box from your home windows xp.

not sure on the exact download page but a fast search for download putty should get you there.

THank you

But putty is only a tunnel access, how about real GUI like winaxe or vnc
Well I have manage to configure vnc and I get connected from my linux to windows perfectly
but when I try to connect from windows to linux I only get one screen which allows me to run pogram only through terminal no KDE etc.

THanks for your help
