Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

rdesktop is for connecting to windows terminal servers, you don't connect to linux servers with it, hence no guides about it. A suitable equivalent would be something like nx from nomachine.org, who's client also supports windows. People will mention VNC, but VNC is rubbish.
Update: yeah, I didn't see your post... Thanks, I will look at xrdp.
Why? Why would you want this? Xrdp is, last time I looked, an alpha attempt at a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, and was very incomplete, and abandoned. If you're doing linux to linux desktop access then using birth a reserve engineered client AND server is just bizarre. If you want to go anywhere near msrdp then at least one part of the equation should relate to microsoft!
Well I've no idea what radmin does that's so sexy, and don't really feel like reading up on it to find out. The best linux X desktop remote access solution i've used is, as above, nx. It's very good, and free for 2 concurrent users.
