Unhappy Linux Server Administration 2 PC help

Hello All,
I have a linux box in the server room, and I have command PC with Win 2000 in my office. I need to be able to control it from that PC, like I do standing in the server room. Is there a way to control my linux box from a PC in graphical mode and command line? If so what software is available. I am learning as I go, so I really need a great way to do this. The Linux box is in the same building, but not on the same network as the PC in my office. Is there anyone who is willing to walk me through this?

KDE is the graphical interface on the linux server.

Please help me.

So I think this is the best place to have your thread posted in th efirst place. I just hope the mods will close the other threads you spawned (double-posts) so there won't be confusion.
OK, to the point - have you heard of telnet? Well think secure "telnet" - ssh, there is putty client that is a windows SSH client and there is sshd deamon that must be run on linux machine to accept ssh requests.
As far as GUI interface involved, have you heard of PCAnyware? well think of streamed down "pcAnyware" - VNC (free as in bread and as in speech) , want some control and quality X-Win32 is the best bet. Well peruse this there are links on the buttom of the page as well.

I would recommend Xmanager I have been using it for a year now to access linux, solaris, aix, and have not had any problems with it. Version 1.3.8 was a 30 day trial but seemed to run forever. The new version 1.3.9 is like $69.00 to register after the 30 days. You will need to make the following settings in order to make it work.....
