NX was mentioned by a couple of people and I'll second it. I have
only used it on a couple of occasions when Frank Duignan of this
parish gave me a test account on a server he had. His server was on
HEAnet's network so as I was using DSL, DSL was the bottleneck. The
account I used was configured with KDE and it was amazingly
responsive - not perceptively different from a remote KDE session
over a LAN.
I'd certainly suggest giving NX a try, in either its free or payware
