Are you using RDESKTOP to remotely login to a Windows machine? I think this sounds like what you want, yes?

1. Windows XP, add users to remote access group
2. Install RDESKTOP in your Linux machine, if not already installed.
3. Create a shell executable script with similar command (I use commented out lines when I want different screen sizes)

#rdesktop -k en-us -g 1024x768 -a 16 -z -x b -P -K -T "title" -u userid -r sound:local
#rdesktop -k en-us -g 1152x864 -a 16 -z -x b -P -K -T "title" -u userid -r sound:local
rdesktop -k en-us -f -a 16 -z -x b -P -K -T "title" -u userid -r sound:local

4. I had to drop the color depth for access via VPN to get the page to load and to improve update rate

#rdesktop -k en-us -g 1152x864 -a 8 -z -x m -P -d domainname -K -T "title" -u userid
rdesktop -k en-us -f -a 8 -z -x m -P -d domainname -K -T "title" -u userid
