I'd think about Teamviewer, they have a Linux client so that should work ...

It's pretty easy to use as well, so shouldn't be too confusing for the end-user.

The Linux version of Teamviewer actually isn't a Linux program, it runs using wine. But it works fine. There is a problem though, it runs under the logged on user account and not as a daemon. So your remote user at least has to login to the PC before you can connect. If you reboot remotely you won't be able to re-connect until you have asked the remote user to login again (unless of course you have set the system to login automatically...).
