    Yes. Under SuSE I believe Remote Desktop Connection is a frontend for rdesktop.

    Use:
    Code:
    rdp:/host.name.here

    krdc is a good graphical launcher for TS/Remote Desktop compatible tools along with tight VNC. It's not too dissimilar from the remote desktop tools in XP/2003 either.

    Sounds good, I will be back on linux in an hour or so to play around but have work to do for my dad in windows.

    krdc will control windows pcs and installs in kde, right?

    Installs by default in SuSE9.3, will run in Gnome or KDE environments, but is native to KDE.
