If you have cygwin, and you have Xwindows installed you don't have to 
do anything on the server. By default the server allows connections 
from X no matter if the client is thin or thick.

We use cygwin in our labs, and I wrote a quick .bat script that calls 
my server.  Don't have it with me right now, but I could dig it up if 
there is interest.
