          Hi,
          I´m not really an expert for using x windows as remote desktop but my question is..

          What do u really want to do with the remote desktop.

          I have ten years experiences of linux administration and I never need to use a remote desktop.

          If you want to start xwindows application just connect X via ssh
          #> ssh -X root@myserver
          For a test try
          #>xclock

          hope that helps
