    Since Mac OS X is based on *BSD Unix, you *should* have an ssh program installed already. It will be command-line, but it should be there. The command-line is hard to find on OS X. If I'm not mistaken it's a program called "Terminal" inside your Applications->Utilities directory. I never remember the name of it though.

    Here is an article on using SSH in OS X that might help as well.

    If you are behind a router you need to make sure that it forwards any request on port 22 to the Fedora box. Once the router has been setup you need to make sure that port 22 is open on the Fedora box. There should be some handy GUI application for your firewall if I remember Red Hat/fed correctly. Once you have that working you should be able to SSH in using the IP Address that is given by the ISP(not your local one). The router will forwad the request to Fedora and Fedora will accept it. Then you should be able to log in from your school computer using your regular username/password combo on the Linux box.

    I'm not familiar with the Red Hat init system. Just make sure that the SSH daemon is running either at boot or when you want to connect.(Starting it in the morning before school)
