Lots of ways,
* Rdesktop: The simplest is you can use "rdesktop" (yum install rdesktop) to connect via MS Remote Desktop Protocol if the Windows machine allows remote desktop. There is a front-end for it called "tsclient" (yum install tsclient).
* VNC: Install a VNC server on the Windows machine anc connect to it using a VNC viewer.
* there are others, like setting up an SSH server, but you're probably not looking for those

Sure. You need to know the IP address of the computer you're connecting to.

No, I'm sorry, you don't use the browser for anything. For the Remote Desktop protocol, you use the "rdesktop" program from the command line.
