Seamlessly integrate XP into Linux with SeamlessRDP

One note, this will NOT work for XP Pro if the PC is on a corporate domain. It will always show the entire desktop.

As stated this method can be used to bring a virtual OR a physical Windows desktop to your Linux desktop seamlessly. Plenty of processor, disk and RAM? Virtual box will confine it to the same physical box. Already got an XP box along with your Linux box? This is a good way to eliminate a KVM switch, dual dedicated monitors or worse yet having to disconnect and reconnect to change OS. It IS slow either way since you are pumping the desktop over the network - so 100mb or 1000mb connections are best. Forget gaming, it's not fast enough, DOS boxes won't redirect either.

Now how about a way to make this work for OSX? Running 3 desktops in one would be way cool.
