    Ive got an old Dell that I want to run Linux on but I dont have a KVM so I just remote to all my machines.

    Could I still have something similar to Remote Desktop from a Windows machine to a Linux one?

    I asked this same question a while ago and got no response whatsoever.

    LogMeIn and any of the VNC flavors run on Linux just fine.

    UltraVnc to add to the list above, I use it daily

    Ubuntu has realVnc features built in, I believe there is a "Remote Desktop Sharing" menu item to enable it

    Yes. A good number of distros have VNC built in, look for Remote Desktop Sharing to configure it.

    so Ubuntu 7.10 has it built in? And I could access it from a Windows machine?
