theres a program called citrix metaframe

Are you running an X server on the winxp PC? if not or you're not sure try this for starters:

I may be wrong but I don't think Citrix Metaframe supports X11

Citrix doesn't support X. You're best bet is probably to get cygwin and install the X portion of it and fire up the X server on your windows PC.
