Whats another way to access RDP in Windows XP, w/o going through Start>Programs>Accessories>Coomunications>Remote Desktop Connection? Also how can I restore this link if it has been removed from the above mentioned path?

You can use the Start>Run and type mstsc.  To restore this link you can just browse to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Communications with Windows Explorer and create a new shortcut to C:\WINDOWS\system32\mstsc.exe.
