I am following these threads and did not answer, yet.
The simple reason is: It works for me (FreeBSD-5.1, rdesktop-1.3.0,
I can specify, e.g., "-g 1024x768" or "-F" (full screen) or "" (nothing, and
I get 800x600).
But: You need at least the same resolution on your desktop as you specify
with the "-g" option.
As Justin wrote: rdesktop does not change the resolution of your X-Server !
In the last version 1.3 I can even now view the rdesktop (running on Solaris
on my PC running the X-Manager as X-server.
Thanks for providing this great software.

Thanks for the answers. My guess is that the PXES clients are the problem, since they are running in 600x800 mode. I have to find a way to change the XF86Config file and svae it somewhere (PXES are diskless and boots from a CD).
Again, thanks for the information

check out xrandr, that changes the screen res for the X server. so you could
pass the geometry setting to that instead and just use the -f option.
