Even though it is a virtual network adapter, by default it will be on the same subnet as the adapter on the host machine.  Are you able to ping that desktop?  Have you ensured that remote access connections are allowed? http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/mobility/getstarted/remoteintro.mspx

have you checked firewall interference?  Easiest way to disable XP firewall is to kill the firewall service

How is the virtual machine getting an IP?  static or dhcp?  is it able to browse the internet?  What IP address is the virtual and host machines getting?  Are they on the same subnet?

Getting IP by dhcp of its own config?  Is the vm a dhcp server as well or is it pulling an APIPA address.  Perhaps try running the VM in bridged mode for the network adapter.  It must of course be on the same subnet or routable to the machine trying to RDP into it.
