    vnc works far better with GNU/Linux than it ever will with windows

    Try these then come back with a more specific question. Note that some
    setups may need to be tweaked when dealing with win machines. vnc

    You need to determine which approach is most appropriate for you.

    VNC was back-ported for windows. I use it all the time to access windows
    machines. There are many viewers and servers available on Linux.

    You've got a wide choice.

    First off, you can use the built-in network support in X. You don't need any
    special software to do this - just the xauth or xhost commands (to give the
    remote system permission to display on your local display), and a
    network-enabled X server on your local system.

    If that's not acceptable, then you can install VNC for Linux.

    There are other options available as well; some X desktops support protocols
    similar to the MSWindows desktop sharing protocols, as well as all the X
    network protocols.

    Take your pick and name your poison ;-)
