    Microsoft has a Mac OSX program called "Remote Desktop Connection" which
    will do what you want, if your Dell is running XP or certain flavors of
    W2K. It will even share your Mac printer to the PC easily. Copies and
    pastes text transparently between Mac and PC. I'm using it and love it;
    I have some (real) desktop available again! Download it from
    microsoft.com.

    Good Luck!

    Or, if you install Apple's free X11, there's a nifty
    little program called rdesktop which, I find, does a
    better job than MS's RDC.

    Matt Haughey has come up with a very clever way to let you switch back
    and forth between the monitors of two machines (one Mac, one Windows
    PC) while using a single keyboard and mouse. Might be kind fun to try:

    Looks useful for Win2K connections (at least the version offered
    by Fink is limited to that), the price is right...

    If you're a Unix type, you may find the Mac brand of OS X a bit clunky in
    places, what with (for example) Netinfo manager and the (in my experience)
    almost constant battle between the permissions that the Finder thinks are
    assigned to files and folders and what the underlying Unix OS thinks (I
    have given up on trying to assign permissions using the Finder and just use
    the terminal all the time). But the advantages far outweigh the
    disadvantages in my opinion.
