Sure it works.
Make sure you have the rdesktop package installed. I have no GUI
frontend in gnome, but KDE offers a rdesktop frontend for this tool. It
supports VNC and RDP.

My experience is that it works way faster then the "official" Windows
RDP client. And easier to configure.

To start from the commandline:>rdesktop <hostname>

I use the resolution parms and userid password in my shortcuts. Works
like a charm.

Cheers
