If they need GUI access to the system, X Windows is another option.

if they just need to access files from their machines, samba, FTP, SCP might be a lot easier.

To access files remotely, I'd use Samba, so the Linux machine would act like a windows server.

if u can use winscp software from windows xp,but u must run ssh on FC5, before that.
u can use sftp graphically but u configure ftp on FC5
u can also configure samba to share the directories on FC5, but u have to configure samba for that.

Thanks for the answers.  I think I'll look into the ssh for starters.
