If so can you tell me the name of the program and either a link to a
place with simple instructions for installation or just some simple

I personally use krdc (Remote Desktop Connection), it's a KDE application so it may not appear in the menus if you use Gnome. It's a nice graphical and friendly app that supports both windows remote desktop and VNC protocols. It can also be launched from the command line by using kdrc

To install with windows RDP support type:

yum -y install kdenetwork rdesktop
