I already answered the question since it definitly has to do everything with 
vnc. The unix (thus linux) implementation is Xwindows all the way.

I personally find Xvnc (the core of vncviewer on unix) a far better way to get a 
view of X11 applications on a M$WIndows desktop than any expensive X11 server on 

For what its worth, the answers include:
get vncserver on the remote host
get the setup as on http://www.sourcecodecorner.com/articles/vnc/linux.asp
get the setup as I previously described (replacing or adding an Xserver).
