Not entirely sure what your question is :(  I take it that you have a Terminal Server installed in Application Mode?

On the XP Pro machine goto Start- Accessories-Communications-Remote Desktop Connection.

Add the IP address of the Terminal Server and it should remember it for future use.  For my Users I just create a shortcut on the desktop for the RDC program.

your description looks like you use the "old"-TS-Client. to my knowledge no way to add xp ...

some workarounds:

*)when your workstation is XP you could use the MMC with the new snapin "Remote-Destops" to create your own console. there you could also store XP-Connections
*) on w2k: a other way is to install the new tsclient (looks like the mstsc in XP) and you can store every connection (for example to a folder "RDP"). then you could doubleclick it and the according session opens
