As far as I know, there's no reason to modify any files on FC5 if you want to display its applications on a remote host.

The easiest configuration should be:
* configure your X server (WinAxe, in this case) "appropriately". It only really needs to accept connections from localhost
* Use PuTTY as your ssh client; enable X11 forwarding in its options
* Make sure that xauth is in your path on the FC5 host
* Check the value of $DISPLAY when you log in to FC5. If everything's set up properly, it will be something like "localhost:10.0".
