Hmm?  Does the '-D' (depth) option to rdesktop not work as intended?  The
manpage also says it autodetects your X session's bit depth and matches
it.  What version of rdesktop are you using?

I've also used rdesktop for remotely administering servers over a 256K
link.  While not speedy, it's definitely more responsive than VNC.
