Connect to Existing X Session

If I have X running, started by the startx command, is there anyway I can go to another linux computer and connect to the X session that is already started? There are times when I need to work on another computer, but want the information that is already on my screen. Example: I use a KVM... I need to see two computers at once sometimes. Therefore, if I could use a laptop (linux) to connect to the one computer, then I could see both at once. Any ideas on how I can do this? I'm running RedHat9, on all the computers involved.

RedHat 9 has a remote desktop connection tool - you have to enable it for un-attended, password-protected authorization. Basically you use vncviewer ( on the other end - and view what's on your screen. Good luck.
