 What I have setup is a a user account for each program that is run on
the 2003 server. In the properties for that user, told it to open the
program when the user logs in.

Then on the Linux server made a icon on the desktop that connects to
the 2003, and opens the program; when they close the program they are
disconnected from the session. Making it look like the program is
being run on Linux.
           rdesktop -u username -p password
I have had some problems getting the users to save work back to their
home folders, because permissions are based on user names.
