??? what ???
so you want to put xorg on a windows 7 / vista / xp OS ?
you do not. As far as i know . There is the very old xfree86 for MinGW & CygWin it is part of the GnuWin32 project
it works, a few years back i got emacs to build and run on xp

Could you be more clear? Do you want to connect to RHEL from Windows like remote desktop? You can use VNC. Or you want to use X on RHEL? You can change the init level or else login and use startx.
Or anything else that none of us understand?

Thanks for the reply.Let me clarify my question.

I m using Visualization in our org. We have some virtual machines which are running rhel 5 on them.
Everyone was enjoying the benefit of having virtual environment and was satisfied using putty session to communicate with server.

But recently we have got some request for getting x console of the machine.I know with VNC viewer i can achieve this .
But is there any other rhel 5 linux in build utility that i can use? (much like mstsc in windows)

Hope i m clear on this.

There is a provision for this though. You can go to System > Preferences > remote desktop and enable it. This will allow you to control the desktop using VNC viewer on windows. Another way is to allow X forwarding on ssh. This way, you can use X applications without connecting using Terminal services. But one backdrop will be that users will need to open those applications that they want to and will not see the desktop.

Thanks for your reply.But there seems to be a small problem as every time i request for a console some one should explicitly allow the session.

How can i avoid this?

Console? What do you mean? Are you talking about the remote desktop that I said? You can password protect it and allow users to control the session. You will not need to allow it.

You can see an option in Security tab which you can disable so that you will not have to confirm each access.

I have little query regarding the same.
This is what i m doing.
@Server End:
I have configured remote desktop setting as described by you.I logged in using root .
@Client End:
I m running vncviewer with serverip:0 as a string.Now i m able to get the console on client end.

This is where the problem happening.
@Server End:
Logged out of root .
@Client End:
I m running vncviewer with serverip:0 as a string.Not able to connect to the console error connection refused.

How can i avoid this from happening? My problem is whenever i logged off i m not able to take the console.

Please suggest.

May be somehow you need to keep the remote desktop service running all the time. You can check what service is used and start it. But I would recommend you use VNC server if you want to use it extensively.
