Question Headless Desktop using Fedora


I've just moved house into a small flat and there just isn't room for my massive monitor! So, in order to be as productive as possible with the space that I have I want to create a headless desktop machine that I can access using a laptop I have.

Both machines will run Fedora Core (either 1 or 2, depending on which makes more sense).

What programs should I use and how should I go about setting something like this up? The two machines are connected by a LAN connection and I want to have total control over the desktop machine as I will probably still use it for development and webserving.

Can anyone recommend a suitable solution? Note that I am not totally dependent on it using Fedora Core - I have experience of SUSE and Mandrake.
