Presumably you have a good reason not to use ssh, which is far more
secure and handles the remoting of X apps very nicely, _so_...

To enable rlogin, edit /etc/xinetd.d/rlogin and set disable to "no".
Reload (or HUP) the xinetd service.

To use a remote xserver, do the following:

localhost$ xhost +remotehost
localhost$ rlogin remotehost
remotehost$ export DISPLAY=localhost:0
remotehost$ xclock &

You should see the xclock appear on localhost's primary display.

Cheers, Ben
