With the link that you provided Veli-Pekka, I was able to get the KDE desktop loaded onto my PC.

If your have network configured then it's possible to get the desktop to 
show trough x in other machine. It can be tricky and haven't done it for 
a while. Usually it's more easy just take ssh connection and run the 
invidual apps from the remote machine trough x-forwarding. Also it's not 
going to be as fast as native and some latest desktop gimmics probably 
won't work.

Here is some info on how to get gnome or other window manager running 
over ssh. It seems littlebit old, but could be useful.


Also you may need to make x in linux box to work trough network sockets. 
I remember reading earlier on the list that it's disabled in F10 by 
default. So if you just need to run some configuration programs best way 
is to use x-forwarding trough ssh with exceed.
