You mean like VNC or SSH? Please use more descriptive thread titles, it makes it much easier for all of us to know what your threads are about.

Got fork out the cash for it though ($60 US for students). My school has it on their Windows boxes, and it works pretty well. You can also use SSH with X forwarding. In your /etc/ssh/sshd_config file you'll need to change the X11Forwarding to "yes". When connecting via ssh, use the ssh -X -C -l username host
the -X is for X forwarding, and -C compresses the data.

^^ As above, be more specific in your "Subject". If your specific, you'll get more people who can actually help you.
