My pleasure, Christian.  I hope it helped!

As a bonus, here is a dirt-simple shell script that I use on a
workstation to run rdesktop:

$ ls -l bin/rdesktop
-rwxr-xr-x 1 rmoen rmoen 75 May 10  2011 bin/rdesktop
$ cat bin/rdesktop
rdesktop -u rmoen -g 1280x1024 -a 16 -k en-us targethost.somecompany.com &

You may want to put something like that somewhere convenient, like in 
~/bin or /usr/local/bin .  (Notice that I set the file executable.)
