Yes. you can start , stop squid on Redhat 9 machine from win98 using SSH etc.

SSH is preconfigured in RH9 mostly so you have to only see this how to to configure SSH  
chinalinuxpub.com/doc/www.siliconvalleyccie.com/linux-hn/ssh-server.htm

Now download PUTTY !! it is used to access SSH from win98 machine. :)

yes.. it will work.. after making one time configuration in REDHAT machine you can do everything without touching the RH9 machine .. you can do all administrative stuff from windows machine using putty!

Never never use telnet is my advice.

Use SSH. (For windows, yes use puTTY to connect to the server.)

U need SSHD (SSH daemon a.k.a SSH Server) to listen for remote access.

Well, if ur lazy with the GUI, install an X11VNC/ VNC and login to ur LINUX box using VNC. :)
