RDP (as mentioned earlier) is my favorite. It seems much more robust
and stable on Fedora core 4 than it used to be. I use it daily from
core 4 to keep a view into TOOS (that other operating system) to run the
company mandated POC email/calendar system and the odd piece of software
for this or that.
Be sure to pick the RDPV5 (the option with a 5 in it ;-)) as the
protocol. You also have to be sure rdp is enabled on the winders side.
I can't remember where in the maze of windows menus you set that.
Windows admins often restrict RDP with a policy. Remember that older
versions of windows don't have RDP built in.
