It depends on the sort of "remotness" you need. X-window can run over TCP/IP (even on localhost it runs over loopback interface). At first you need ssh. On your client - ssh-client, for server(home) - sshd service running. then from school #ssh your_machine -l your_login. If you want to see entire DE -Real VNC is a solution http://vnc.com
If it help - Have fun if not - post some more questions

hi,
do you need the gui?
look at vnc, xhost,.... but the main question would be the security so I would prefer SSH and start my apps through ssh (xforwarding!)

um, running apps on your home computer from school without ssh would just be stupid anyone could see what your doing and get your password to get into your computer I'm almost sure you can do this on windows with cygwin but I wouldn't know 'cause no way I'll run that crappy os on one of my machines.

lots of people-lots of software %-)
if I have to access mu Unix servers from WindoV$ I use pytty for ssh access and X-manager-to run X application on Win-box over ssh connection

so read the fine manual and make your deZIsion

tell me one thing - What are you afraid of? %-) putty doesn't need to be !!!installed!!! it is JUST ONE executible file and if you have a permition to write A FILE anywhere in the Win file system and run it - you can "install" PUTTY %-) all you need to know - is IP-adress of your machine
