Question Newbie questions abt Linux

I am using mandrake 9.1 KDE.
I was wondering if I could access my windows desktop from linux. As in open a my windows desktop as a new window in linux.

Also I am using amsn but i cant seem to run it without using a console window. Even when i run it using a console window the program shuts down the moment i close my console. Is tehre way out of running amsn by double clicking an icon or by running it through a console and then closing the console without actually closing amsn.

Hoping ill stick to LINUX!
