Note that you don't need to run X on the server to use an X program
from elsewhere.  If, for example, you wanted to run
redhat-configure-network remotely you could check the box on putty
to enable X tunneling before connecting, fire up cygwin X in
-multiwindow mode and after logging in to the server type in
"redhat-configure-network &" and (eventually) it will pop a window
open on your desktop.  Likewise for nedit if you have a fast
connection and haven't learned vi yet.
