I know of Putty. I currently use rxvt (via Cygwin).
Is there a more "integrated" terminal program for Windows out there? e.g. something closer to KDE's kconsole -- where I can have multiple shells all tabbed within the same window. etc.

So far as I know, Putty is the best open-source non-commercial SSH client for Windows. For tabbed sessions there is http://puttycm.free.fr/cms/
You could also look at commercial programs such as Reflection for Unix and SecureCRT. (Edit:) They both offer tabbed sessions.
Another option might be Putty + screen (
In no particular order.

I thought it would be useful to have a concise list. For votes, see also below.
I know you already accepted an answer, but I hate Putty and there IS another tool out there for Windows users. A lot of people say Putty is the best - probably because it's the only tool they know about for Windows clients. I thought it was the only option as well until I found Poderosa.
It offers multiple panes/sessions per window, multiple tabs, simple font/color customizations, background images/colors - and probably a few more things I haven't found yet.
It's the only tool I use now for telnet/ssh/console(serial) terminal shell sessions. It might be what you're looking for.
I am using SecureCRT.
check for MobaXterm, a terminal console for windows which allows ssh, public keys, X forwards, multi-tabs, and many linux commands in windows environment.
Absolute Telnet seems to offer some of what you're looking for, including tabbed connections.
mRemote is an Open-Source 'connection management' app. (It has since been sold to another company, but the source is still available.) In addition to PuTTy sessions (you need to have it installed), it'll also manage RDP v6, VNC, HTTP and so on.
Development has stopped on mRemote and moved to the new product, but it's fine at the final release, v1.50
I use the ssh client in Cygwin's port of the
OpenSSH package all the time in Windows XP. The thing I like most about it is that it works pretty much exactly the same way as the ssh on every UNIX and Linux, in terms of capabilities, command-line options, and config files. This means you can cruise the UNIX and Linux forums for help and hints, and their suggestions will almost always apply to the Cygwin client.
