Windows Remote Desktop

I have a Windows XP computer with "Remote Desktop" and another computer running Slackware Linux with kernel

I was just wondering if there was a way to use Windows "Remote Desktop" with Linux too, instead of using a third computer running Windows XP to log in (via a browser) and use this feature.

If there is a way without using VNC, I'd like to hear about it. Also, where can I find information about this "Remote Desktop" protocol -'s website is horrible, and Windows Help tells me little.

Thanks in advance.

[If there is a way of doing this easily, then I won't continue my efforts for writing some linux application that'll login to Window's "Remote Desktop" services... I'm just trying to gather as much information as i can right now.]

I use rdesktop . I'm not sure where you can find better docs on RDP, but I see there is a mailing list on the rdesktop site, someone there will probably know. Or you could just download and read their source.
