If I have decoded "how to turn console into the remote desktop" correctly, 
then you would need NX/freenx and log onto the remote system as root (where 
the "Push new icons..." are located). You could *try* something like this 
(assuming KDE for the moment):

	ssh -X -l root remotemachine '/usr/bin/startkde'

But I don't think you would like the result. NX is more efficient, you can 
suspend sessions etc. NX/freenx would be the right tool.
