I'm not sure I
understand your question but I'll have a go. rdesktop is an application that
runs on your linux system. Your XP system comes with desktop sharing that will
allow you to connect one rdesktop.
may have come with rdesktop already installed and so you may not need to build
If not and you have
downloaded it then build and install it and run it on you linux box and give it
the name or ip of you XP system.
