You will need:

Step 1: Enable ssh on Raspberry Pi

Login with the following information when prompted:
Username: pi
Password: raspberry

Type the following commands:

sudo -i
cd /boot
mv boot_enable_ssh.rc boot.rc
reboot

After Pi is restarted check ip-address with the command
ifconfig
Note the inet addr!

It is a good idea to change password. This is done with the command:
sudo -i
passwd pi
Remember the new password!

After this step you'll not need to use monitor and keyboard to run commands on your Raspberry any more. See next step!


Step 2: Install Putty On your PC

Save. Click open.

You'll be prompted
login: 
If you done right...

Login with username pi and the password you entered in previous step. (Default password is raspberry)

Thanks mkahata! (sorry for the late answer)

No different than accessing any other linux box.

You are absolutely right! It is a Linux box, but smaller and funnier! =} Leave a "Computothoght was here" on indexpage if you hack it... and post your step by step instructable in the Raspberry contest and you'll surely win. :) With respect, A
Finally have my pi. Just found out the newer units have twice the memory. Wished I had waited a bit longer to get it......
