rdesktop.exe session on an X-terminal?

We need to configure a single-host Win2k Terminal Server solution;
this machine should provide Windows desktops on X-terminals. On
a test machine using Cygwin/Xfree86 one may telnet from the X-terminal
and establish an xterm (bash) session but 'rdesktop.exe' will not
open a session on the remote display. 'rdesktop.exe' does open
a session window on the console display if invoked from a console
'rdesktop' running on a Unix host works well to provide a Windows
session desktop on an X-terminal however we need to create a
configuration which doesn't require a separate Unix host to
provide X11 services.
Also XDM running on Cygwin/Xfree86 will produce a 'willing to manage'
broadcast and if the Win host is selected it does present a login
screen but fails on authentication. Has anyone made XDM work?
