Tunneling through SSH

I want to be able to run X applications on my slackware box from a remote linux box over SSH. I know when I need to do that from windows, there is a field that I check that states something to the effect 'Tunnel X11 connections' or something like that. What is the equivalent way of doing it in linux? Thanks

Okay, I figured it out. Simple either run ssh with the -X flag, or edit ~/.ssh/config with a 'ForwardX11 yes' for a more permanent solution.
