Thanks for your help
I tried typing all the options into rdesktop first, and tried KDEs thing, tried this and that etc. and nothing worked. I was looking up how to access windows shares and installing samba and all this stuff, then I saw your post and just tried rdesktop 192.168.1.200
and it works! woo hoo! i never have to open up my old laptop again. it is just going to sit on my shelf downloading things for me. :-)
also i figured out the other options from there:
rdesktop 192.168.1.200 -g 1280x900 -a 16
only problem is the damn old computer keeps thinking it's time for bed and sleeping on me. grrr.
