Looking for Remote Admin Tools, With GUI

I'm kind of a linux n00b and still rely on the GNOME GUI to help me get around. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a VNC/PCAnywhere/Terminal Services equivalent that would allow me to access the RedHat 9 desktop remotely through Windows XP.

Does such a tool exist?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, but it only shows the shell, not the desktop GUI, unlike the Windows version.

rdesktop is the tool you are looking for I believe.

TightVNC does what you're asking also, I believe. There's a lot of choices out there..
Those are good places to start looking for some linux apps.
You can also look up remote administration on either of those pages and probably find quite a few results..
