Good choice! With Cygwin it's almost too easy. ;->

On the windows side, you need to install X in Cygwin. It's the second to
last option in the installer and was not selected by default the last
time I did an install a couple of months ago.

On the FC1 side, you need to run gdmsetup (System Settings -> Login
Screen) and set the 'Enable XDMCP' checkbox on the SDMCP tab. You will
then need to restart X. Logging out and then back in will do.

Finally, from a Cygwin command line, run 'X --query <system name>'.
You'll get a full screen X session from the remote machine.
