How to remote into Windows from Linux

You can easily use rdesktop to remote into a Windows machine from Linux. I am using Ubuntu 7.10 and rdesktop works fast and its easy. The default resolution is really small so here is my command to start it up specifying a different resolution.

rdesktop -g 1024x800 server

You can also specify the -f option for full screen mode, but beware it's not easy getting out of rdesktop full mode. Use CRTL+ALT+ENT to exit full screen mode.

Have you seen anyway to resize the window on the fly, rather than at the command line?

rdesktop's only deficiency, as far as I can see.
