you want to run X across the network? You mean the other box is
serving the files needed to run the Xserver? Or you mean access the
other box via X? (ie you want to setup an Xterminal)
i think you mean the latter, in which case the only things you need
shell (just to be safe)
basic file utils..
and any libraries or modules that these might need. (which you can
check with ldd).. should fit in under 100MB. Fonts you can keep on
another box and use xfs to serve them to
the Xterminal howto is good.
