Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

been a while since i used exceed but here goes, there should be a configuration program called Xconfig or something like that, you can do everything in there. firstly you need to configure exceed to accept connections from the rh90 machine, then you need to set the protocol to XDMCP - passive, this means the x server just sits there waiting for connections, now ssh to your rh90 machine and do export DISPLAY=host.running.exceed:0 you should now be able to run x-windows applications through the terminal and they should appear in exceed, i suggest you run a window manager first like icewm or wmaker.
sorry if ive missed something there but its been over a year since i used exceed. the help files that come with exceed should help you with the windows side and there is a remote X howto on tldp.org to help you with the linux side.
the graphic login is done with the xdm daemon but i have no idea how to configure it. icewm is a window manager(lets you move windows round the screen, adds titlebars, etc), but if you get xdm working then it will start a window manager for you so you dont need to worry about it.
On your linux box in the xdm-config file, you have to comment out the line that reads:
Use "!" to comment this line out.
On the PC, I use
xconfig - this brings up a program group and I double click communications. From here I select XDMCP-query, then configure. Place the host name of your linux box here and OK your way out. Double click the Exceed icon on your desktop or go through Start - Programs etc.
