do you have an Xserver configured for windows XP? you will need and X running up on both ends, try something like Cygwin for your windows xp box and see if you can't configure it's X server to accept X from your linux box, as for the mandrake end i can't help you nor can i help you with configuring cygwin as i really havn't tried it myself., best of luck
