With linux you dont need to use the GUI to administer it, everything can be done on the CLI.  I suggest installing sshd on the linux box and get something like PuTTY http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html to use as the client on the win32 box.

If you want a remote-desktop like setup, try <a href="http:/www.realvnc.com">VNC</a>. Otherwise, you need an X server, which will allow you to run X programs remotely and have them display on your Windows client. I'd recommend <a href="http://www.cygwin.com">Cygwin</a> as it is free and quite good.

If you like to use the gui then this is good http://www.starnet.com/products/downloads.asp
 But like zuralin You do not need the gui to administer a Linux box you should learn the CLI
  Faster and more productive then any GUI could ever be.

What I use is Putty (mentioned above) to create an ssh tunnel to the linux box, then I use VNC (also mentioned above) for the remote control application. It is a very stable and with the correct firewall rules quite secure solution.

If you need exact instructions on how to set it up let me know. I also agree that the remote gui is not the best way to administer the box.

FreeNX is also a option.

It doesent show you what is on the screen of the box you connect to, but instead spawns you a whole new desktop that only you can see ... full X, works well. I'm still testing it, just need to figure out how to make it start from boot ( on the server box )
