Windows Remote Assistance works just fine to and from Windows XP Home. Are you saying that Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Home use different versions of the RDP? And that rdesktop only supports the RDP version used by Windows XP Pro? Hmmm, if that's the case, then I had better change my plans to use my local windows computers to help debug my Mom's computer. sigh
"Remote Desktop" and "Remote Assistance" are completely different. XP Home supports "Remote Assistance" which is a different protocol and, to my knowledge, can not be accessed using rdesktop or even the Windows "Remote Desktop" client. It has it's own client.
For Remote Desktop access you need to run XP Professional.
