Question Games, VPN Client

I appreciate everyone that has contributed with some questions I had posted in the past. This is definitely a great forum, and has made me like Linux more than ever.

I have a question due to the fact that I am a newbie when it comes to linux. I use Red Hat enterprise edition version 5. I need to know how I can install a VPN Client that would allow me to remote to my Windows Office computer. Also How do I install games on this computer? When I installed the OS I checked all the options available including games.

Thanks all.

There are several clients to connect to Windows based computers. The one I have been using for a couple years is called rdesktop. It's simple and command line based but that's my preference.

You can read up on how to find and add or remove software to your RedHat system here:
