i have been proselytizing rdesktop.org on Knoppix for
weeks and just heard why so many could not find
information. If one puts rdesktop.org into a web
browser, a 404 page cannot be found error appears.
Please please add a DNS entry for rdesktop.org
without the preceding www.

Thank You For a Kickass product that is allowing me
to work safely from internet cafes while travelling.

    Done.

    Note that the reason that I didn't do this originally is
    that all the other *.rdesktop.org entries are CNAME aliases
    to something.sourceforge.net, and due to the design of DNS
    it is not possible to do the same for rdesktop.org. So I've
    had to hardcode a SourceForge IP address which may break in
    the future.
