I can help with that one

rdesktop is an RDP client which run on Linux

rdesktop will allow you to connect to a Windows XP desktop or Win2K3 
terminal server in a similar fashion to VNC

It will allow you to use a windows desktop on your linux terminal

It's not the ideal solution but it can help if you need occasional 
access to legacy apps. (We have MS Access databases)





Reading the docs it is in K12LTP 4.4.1 but I can't fathom out how to 
start it!
