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.

you can install it on windows and remotely use the linux box.
you can even use the kde or gnome.

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 )
