LinuxPower: Remote X

"This page is going to help you run X programs on another computer, but display it on your X session. This is especially helpful if you have a slow machine on your LAN or want to display X applications on a Windows machine."

"On your client side (the computer you want to display and use the program) you need something that allows the display of X programs. On a Linux/Unix machine you'll probably just need to have something like XFree86 or MetroX; any standard X server will do, as long as it displays and starts up fine on your computer. If it's a Windows machine, you need to download an X server. Two that I know of are XWin32 and MI/X. You can look for more at Tucows, under server daemons, I think."
