Does the other pc have a firewall? Is it set to accept remote desktop connections? Could it be that it is being refused by user intervention?

I don't have it installed and have just done so for the sake of this thread. In the README file, it says:
Quote:
Invocation
----------

% rdesktop [options] server

where server is the name of the Terminal Services machine. Note: if you
receive "Connection refused", this probably means that the server does not have
Terminal Services enabled, or there is a firewall blocking access.

The rdesktop manual page lists the possible options ("man rdesktop").
Does the other desktop have rdesktop installed?

You aren't providing a login on that rdesktop command line you posted here.

It needs to be something like:

rdesktop -u <username> -p <password> -a ipaddress

There are other options that can be added that will set things like desktop size, etc. Do a ...

man rdesktop

and read.

Sorry, but I need to ask because I'm unclear about this: Are you trying to rdesktop into a Linux machine? If you are, rdesktop is for the MS Windows Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and can only be used to connect to machines running recent versions of Windows.

Usually some form of VNC (RealVNC, TightVNC, and many others) or FreeNX.

Use the package manager in the Mandrake Control Centre to install tightvnc-server. (Goto http://easyurpmi.zarb.org if it can't find it).
Now edit the file /etc/sysconfic/vncservers and add a line like this:
Code:
VNCSERVERS="1:tim"
(replace tim with your username).
In your home folder create a file named .wmrc and add the text 'KDE' (without the quotes) and save it. Put GNOME if you'd rather use GNOME.
In the Mandrake Control Centre again start the VNC service.
On the other Mandrake machine install the package 'krdc' - it provides a much nicer VNC viewer than the default that comes with Mandrake (you can easily scroll, goto fullscreen, enter special keystrokes such as ctrl+alt+del).
