Remote desktop connection
I have never used Linux before, but am about to install Mandrake 9.2
on my PC at home. At the moment I have Windows XP Profesional and use
Remote Desktop Connection to connect to the Windows 2003 server at

Once I have installed Linux on my PC, what Linux application should I
use to connect to the Windows 2003 server at work ? Please include a
link where I can download the application.

If you're thinking of remote-controlling the Windows server (having its desktop in a window in your Linux and sending it keyboard and mouse input), use VNC. Your distribution most probably contains it already, and you can find additional information here:
