Log on to a remote windows account when starting a Linux machine


I'd like to know if there's a way to log on to a remote windows account from a linux machine. I have a windows account on a remote computer, but I have linux (Suse 9.3) on my personal computer. Is there any way I can log on to my windows account with Linux?
Thank you for your answer...

depends what you want to do really...

control the GUI?? you can setup a vnc server on windows (check out tightvnc) then use a viewer on suse, with options to allow remote control or not (tightvnc has a client too)
