Surely you have another reason for wanting to use Linux besides only to remote desktop into Windows?

I'd encourage you to spend a little time familiarizing yourself with Linux and how it works - otherwise, you're bound to experience frustration and disappointment.

Anyway, the program you're referring to is "rdesktop"; you can download it, find documentation, and post queries about it here:
