Try NX. On the server:

	yum install freenx

For the client, download and install the NX client from nomachine.com and 
import the "client.id_dsa.key" from /etc/nxserver on the server.

NX implements remote X sessions with heavy-duty compression and caching to 
make it really perform, even in low-bandwidth (ie. WAN) situations (it is 
supposed to work on dialup connections). It also uses SSH for transport, so 
you get the benefits of encryption. It has provisions for redirecting sound 
and other services too.
