    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    The simple answer is "yes". Linux supports VNC pretty much out-of-the-box for remote desktop access. For shared folders, you should use samba so that windows can connect to the linux file system just like windows shares. FWIW, there are also VNC servers for Windows so Linux users can remotely access windows systems as well. I use it to support clients from my office - I can connect to their pc and either see what they are doing, or remote control the desktop.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
