rdesktop.  http://www.rdesktop.org/

I'm using rdesktop-1.0.0 with unified patch 19-5-8.  It works fine for
me, so I've not seen a need to upgrade to a higher patchlevel.

It works against Win2k SP2 with the latest security patches; however,
since Microsoft don't publish the spec of RDP, there's nothing to stop
them doing something in the future that would break rdesktop.
