Using the same "yum search <string>" command, I tried "rdp" first:

root@patagonia=> yum search rdp
blag                                                     | 2.4 kB     00:00

================================= Matched: rdp =================================

among these, "rdesktop" is what I've used. It provides an X gui for both rdp and terminal server. For more information, use "yum info <package>", like so:

root@patagonia=> yum info rdesktop.i386
