    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

    hope that helps
