Yes, vncserver works pretty well if you have a fast local connection - and it is 
easy to set up. The freenx, NX client combination does approximately the same 
thing but is much more efficient because it uses X protocol instead of just 
bitmaps - and it can resize the screen as you connect from different clients. It 
also tunnels everything over ssh so you don't have to arrange that yourself.
