Since you have only the one public IP address, which is presumably used on the outside PIX interface, here's how to do it:

static (inside,outside) tcp interface 3389 192.168.1.200 3389 netmask 255.255.255.255
access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any interface outside eq 3389
access-group outside_access_in in interface outside

This allows any Internet host to RDP into that machine, so I would specify individual source IP addresses for that access list for security reasons if you know what they are.

Well, if the people that you want to be able to access the server via a remote desktop connection have a known public static IP address, then you would find out what that is and then structure your access list using only the static IP address for those users.  For example, if you had an external user that had 1.1.1.1 as a static public IP address, then you would use the following access list statement to only allow that source IP address (1.1.1.1) to access that server via remote desktop:

access-list outside_access_in permit tcp host 1.1.1.1 interface outside eq 3389

You would then put in one of those statements like above for every user that had a static public address.  This may not be feasible for your situation since the users you want to have access the server may not have static public IP addresses.  Make sense?
