I have 2 computer.On my notebook I have Windows XP and my home desktop has Suse Linux 9.0.

At my home I have DSL router connection.I would like to know how I can set up a remote desktop connection between my notebook and my desktop.I would like to control my Linux computer with my Windows XP computer when I am away from home.

Please note that I am a newbie so explain slow and if you have enought time step by step!!!

Thanks all in advance!! BYE BYE!
