Just for fun. A bash shell, many nix utils, and X, running in Windows with no installation. http://xlivecd.indiana.edu/
With this you can run X apps from your DSL computer from Windows machine.
This is not remote X. It is local X running remote X-apps via ssh.
Boot your DSL computer. Change the password for user dsl, or add your windows user to DSL with the menu System->Add Users
From windows, boot the XliveCD and then ssh into your DSL box, something like this:
Desktop> ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
Then you can run an Xapp, like say sylpheed.
This will work with DSL without running X in DSL.
boot: dsl 2 ssh
This will start DSL at runlevel 2, cli, and start ssh deamon.
Then from Windows you can run sylpheed, or firefox, or other Xapps.
