How do I connect to a remote Linux desktop?

Hello everyone outthere!

I want to connect to remote Linux desktop(on LAN) from my Windows PC.

Linux is running FC5 - 2.6.17-1.

My Windows is running Windows 2K.

I have tried VNC, but this does not give you full linux desktop.

Is there any free softwares that we can use it?

Thank you for your help.

Putty is a graphical windows ssh client which allows you to remotlely log into to systems. It has both secure shell and file transfer options. Just do a google search for it.

freenx is a full graphical tool wich is a lot faster than vnc,
though you will have to read the howtos on the freenx website to get it working.
