More like desktop sharing.

i only used the phrase "Remote Desktop" since that's how it appears in
the GNOME menu.

Bizarre. I'm looking at http://www.gnome.org/~markmc/remote-desktop.html

It's clear it's talking about desktop sharing (or remote assistance), and not remote desktop as anyone else uses the term.

AFAIK this is the only remote desktop client for Linux: http://www.rdesktop.org/

That's for the Windows remote desktop protocol and there is no corresponding server. If you want something with equivalent performance on Linux, look at freenx with the NX clients from www.nomachine.com. The current freenx server can't share the active console session though, you have to start new sessions when you first connect and then you have the choice of suspending or terminating them when you disconnect. The commercial NX server claims to allow connections to the console but I haven't tried it.
