the rdesktop terminal server client is specifically for machines running RDP, which is the windows remote desktop protocol. if you install xtightvnc, this will allow you to use rdesktop to remote into a linux desktop. However, you will be using a VNC connection. There is a way to tunnel VNC through a SSH connection, which will secure the connection.

Hope that helps! Do fill in your profile, let us know what distro you are using.
