Remote X-windows Session

I want to be able to run a X-windows session on my Win2k machine that is on the network with my linux box. I had this setup a long time ago and I've tried to do it again but can't remember how. I've looked through some How-tos and have got nowhere slowly.
I've got the right client software for the windows machine I jsut need to know how to setup the linux box (rh7.2) to allow my other machine to connect to the x-windows server

You will need a xserver for your windows machine, eg. eXceed.

There's a free xserver for windows at .

Alternatively, since win2k now has a remote desktop service ( RDP or 'terminal service' ) you can use rdesktop, from to connect to the win2k box from your linux machine as well.

Oops, I missed the part when you said you already hand the xserver.

What xserver are you using?
