that appears to just launch the remote desktop tool.  I was wondering if I was having an issue with SP 3 on the XP clients connecting vs the XP SP2 machines that will connect to the win server 03 via RDP

So you cannot connect to the console session or you cannot connect at all?

Uhm, assume we have already made sure the ALLOW REMOTE DESKTOP (Not Assistance) is checked

Got it fixed, turns out that the machine had been refreshed recently and the tunneling over putty config was gone.
Thanks for the help!

It's worth noting that earlier versions of the RDP client use the /console switch whereas later versions use /admin - Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom chose to change the command and not mention it - nor is there an error message regarding /console doing nothing in newer versions.  (/admin generates an error on OLDER versions).
