rdekstop from rdesktop.org

I use vnc-server for desktop sharing, I think the client of the package: vncviewer may fit your needs.

good luck.

I highly recommend VNC for cross-platform remote control. The best VNC server I've used is RealVNC (realvnc.com) for Windows -- very stable. You can also get VNC servers for Mac (repost if you're interested) and Fedora comes with vncserver (although that's not really remote control).

VNC viewer is of no use if the VNC server is not running on the windows machine, whereas you can alwasy connect with remote desktop (MRDP).
you can get rdesktop at http://www.rdesktop.org

rdesktop should work out of the box with Windows 2000 and newer. If you choose to go the VNC route just be warned that it employs no security whatsoever aside from a password sent in plain text.

Terminal services only come with "server" versions of Windows NT-type products (like NT Terminal Server, 2000 Server or Advanced Server, etc.) Terminal services is not included in regular Windows NT Workstation or Windows 2000 Professional. If you need to remote-control those versions (as we often do) you need to use something else.

If remote control security is a major concern with VNC I have read of people using it in conjunction with SSH tunnels but I'm not quite sure how to do that.
