You wil need an X server on your windows machines. There are commercial
products such as eXceed and Reflection that do this. I'm told the
latest cygwin and XFree work nicely together now, allowing you to use X
on windows freely.
Have you tried any of these?

Mandrake but the config file took a bit of tweaking. How far have you
got with this?
