Access for Multiple Linux servers from any cilent node running REDHAT LINUX 9

I have a Local Network of LINUX Systems.
I have 4 linux servers running fedora core.
I have 16 Linux client workstations running Red Hat 9.

From any of the above 16 clients [running Redhat 9] I wish to choose and connect to any one LINUX server in Graphical Mode[running Fedora core]. At present I use telnet to access in text mode only for remote servers.

Pl advise me how to provide a common desktop in each client node [like KDE or GNMOME] so that I can choose appropriate server in Graphical Mode and run any application in that server in graphical mode.

You can set your DISPLAY variable to your IP address instead of /dev/console then connect to the server via a X window client.
