Do you want access to the whole desktop or just have the apps appear on
your desktop? Using 'ssh -X' into the remote machine will give you a
terminal and forward all X apps started on the remote machine to your
local console. Very cool.
If you wanted the entire desktop you could try the nested X server and
connect that to the remote machine, you could try starting a second
local X server (not nested) and tell your XDM to go to the other machine
for its login prompt.
Alternately you could try VNC.
Hope that helps.
