Install and start the ssh daemon on your linux box. Depends on your distribution how to do that.

SSH should be included with your distribution, 99.99% sure. Just start your daemon like Earthwings said. On the Winusucks side, you'll need putty or something similar to SSH into your Linux box.

Linux~Powered is right just download "putty.exe" in your windows then check if the sshd is running i don't know if it is the same command in mandrake to ckeck running daemon "chkconfig --list" or check if it is installed "rpm -qa" then
config the sshd vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config
make sure there is no hash(#) in Port 22
PermitRootLogin yes
This config if you want to ssh your linux box using root.

Just find out the equivalent command in ubuntu bcoz i'm not using ubuntu.
