How to setup remote control on Ubuntu 9 for use of windows client ?

How to setup remote control on Ubuntu 9 for use of windows client ?

Just for use in a home network.
I've had a computer for media files for a long time and now I changed from Windows 2000 to Ubuntu 9.
I the home network there is some Windows W2k and XP Home and I will use VNC or RDP for remote control of this Ubuntu desktop.

I've no experience of Linux at all and I've seen some notes about this with no luck.

ok i recomend you to use a vnc server on ubuntu machine.
you can easily setup the vnc.
when you are in unbuntu just click on system, then preferences and there remote desktop there setup server's settings.
And thenyou have to add an exception in firewall gui program named firestarter. you may add the addresses of machines which have to connect to the server's 5900 port.

Regards! NESK
