Linux remote access options

Aside from VNC, what are some common methods to connect to a Linux server (FC5) to access files from a remote client computer.  The clients will be Windows XP and Vista, Mac OS X, and Red Hat and Fedora computers.

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.
