Exporting X Display

Hey everyone. I'm looking for a program which will work on WinXP and allow me to export a remote X display to windows. The only programs I've ever used before are quite costly, but I was certain there must be some good free alternative out there. Any suggestions?

Maybe you're looking for something like this:

It's a free VNC (Virtual Private Networking) client and server program.

another way:

cygwin is free from redhat, stable, runs on windows, and provides a unix command line that you can startx from to forward your X from your linux box to your windows box via ssh.
