    You can launch rdesktop from the shell:
    $rdekstop [hostname of the computer you want to connect to]

    for example:
    $rdesktop 192.168.1.5

    You can specify resolution and window name like this:
    $rdesktop -g 1024x768 -T "Second Computer" 192.168.1.5

    There are other options you can include such as username and password -- "-u somename" and "-p xxxxxx" for password. like this
    $rdesktop -g 1024x768 -u "bob" -p "ilovelinux" -T "Second Computer" 192.168.1.5

    If you get tired of entering that all in the command line every time, you can quickly create a desktop icon by doing this:
    1. right click anywhere on the desktop
    2. select "Create Launcher"
    3. set it up like this:
    Type: Application
    Name: Second Computer
    Command: $rdesktop -g 1024x768 -u "bob" -p "ilovelinux" -T "secondcomputer" 192.168.1.5
    Comment: This isn't so hard!
    4. you can change the Icon for it too. Then click OK and you'll have a desktop icon.
