Xwin -query

I'm trying to Xwin into a Fedora 10 machine from a cygwin on a 2003 server. I can Xwin into other linux boxes from this machine, but not to the Fedora 10 box.

I used the Fedora 10 Live disk to install and downloaded all the xorg downloads for the Server portion within yum. Unfortunately I'm still having an issue.

When I read the output from the cygwin window it says it is looking for the XF86config file. However there is none. Also it seems that it is trying to go to /usr/X11/R6/lib/X11/font, this doesn't exist either on Fedora 10.

Can someone give any ideas on what I should do?
