    I have experience with windows and mac servers, but I wanted to try a linux server, so I went ahead and put down a chunk of cash for a server with redhat linux, and now I'm sitting here with the deer in the headlights look.

    Let me say this before anyone makes any comments about how great command lines are . . . I don't want to hear it.

    All I want to know is how I can set it up to use it like demonstrated here:

    Is the above a lie?

    You would have to write a perl script to move it for you...

    :p


    @Jason - it's intimidating at first making the transition, but it's well worth it. It might seem cliche but grab "Red Hat for Dummies" and start working through the chapters. Once you start to get into 'nix there's no going back... :)

    It depends. It might be all setup for you, if you just do something like:

    Code:
    yum install freenx
    
    (above from Fedora 8 - no idea if prior versions or CentOS have it in the default repositories).

    Once that is done, install a VNC client on your desktop machine. If you a traversing Firewalls, you'll want to ensure the proper ports are open.
