If you enable XDMCP on the linux box, and the X server on the windows box
can issue a "query" to the linux box, you'll get the login screen and a
regular gnome (or whatever) session when the additional user(s) logs in.
You'll just need to find the magic recipe to enable XDMCP (broadcast I
think) on othe linux box. VNC is not as seamless but is better performance
over longer/slower connections. sounds like this is not a long connection.
