How to create an icon for Rdesktop


Hi I have just installed rdesktop on my RH9.0 box. It works fine, I can access my Win2k3 server without any issue. However the only way I know to run it is from a terminal, which pops it up in a little box that I can't resize, is it possible to create on icon of some sort that will let me run Rdesktop without opening a terminal, and let me run it full screen? or am I dreaming. Thanx in advance.

create a script that looks something like this
Code:
#!/bin/sh

rdesktop -a 16 -f -u username -p password win2k3host
called it say "remotedesktop", make it executable (chmod u+x) and put it in /usr/local/bin
If you use GNOME right click on the desktop and select "create launcher", and put "/usr/local/bin/remotedesktop" in the Command field. For KDE it should be something similar.
