ok Ive been studying this ssh service. Im running Fedora Core 3 and it is active on my machine...........or at least a "pgrep ssh and pgrep sshd" command show it running and the ssh daemon is listed as active in my list of active services.

My question is........if it is running on my linux box does the other windows boxes within my network have to be running it to connect to me?

If so or if not....how do I configure this thing? The information that I have found about it so far reads like stereo instructions in another language. I really need some help here!

No, the clients do not need the server process in order to use SSH.
The SSH server is configured with reasonable settings out of the box - if you have it active then it works already.
You need a SSH client in order to connect to your Linux box. PuTTY is an excellent program.
