Issuing CTRL+ALT+DEL in VNC (linux)

I would like to control my windows 2000 box which has vnc running on it and I would like to control it from my Linux workstation. After issuing the following command
It prompts me for a password which I issue.

I can see the Windows 2000 lock screen asking me to press CTRL + ALT + DEL. The question is how do I do that.

I can do that in Windows environment by right clicking on the taskbar and I get an option to select CTRL+ALT+DEL.

Thank in advance

krdc and x2vnc
If you are using the Remote Control program included with the latest SuSE or Mandrake - krdc - then you can simply click the button from the menu at the top of the window. Nice.

Also of note: I have 3 monitors on my desktop, the two center & right are running on SuSE 9.1 on one system and the other is on a Windows XP box (yea, I know but my work requires it and that's my job - supporting this failing OS).

So what I'm getting at is I can mouse within all three montiors! Yeah, it's nice. 1 & 2 are using nvidia's xinerama extension. I mouse over to #3 using a little known free program called x2vnc and of course vnc on #3. Just Google for x2vnc. It's very sweet and I've tried it with 5 monitors; works just the same & amazes the crap out of my windows customers... hehe.

I like the idea of controlling several monitor off one machine. I downloaded x2vnc and tried installing it but, when I 'make install' it comes back with errors because am using 'Knoppix STD Livecd'.

Maybe I should install a real linux os, but my work is all based on M$ systems.
