Anyone know how to run an X server on m$ windows?

I have a few linux boxen and i wanna have it show up on here, I've done it on linux before, but being a student I am forced to use windoze for some things, and I'd like to have some linux progs open on this desktop..

Im not lookin for RTFM, cause TFM dont have much in it on running a windoze x server..(AFAIK, I could be wrong)

TIA for any help..
Andrew

You can do this, but I don't know of any free x-servers for windos.  Perhaps
VNC is what you want.

Check this out: http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/   It's free and it works
great.

One good option is to get Cygwin and Cygwin/XFree86; the price is right
(free). Go to http://www.cygwin.com and follow the downloading
instructions. (But perhaps not right now; their site seems to be down as
I write this.)

VNC is the only way to fly.  It comes with linux and is free for windows.

I is distributed by AT&T or Bell Labs, just search for VNCServer and you
should find it.

I did find one free X server for Windows on Tucows or download.com...
well, maybe it was shareware or something...  wasn't that great.  The best
one I have found is Exceed, but I think it's pricey, my employer bought
the one I use so I'm not sure.  Once you have an X server the rest is dead
easy, just set DISPLAY=<windows box>.0 and have at it.

This is another free X server for windows, also a version for Mac's. Do not
know how good it is, I just saw it some time back and bookmarked it.

Mix -- that's the one I tried first.  It's...  umm...  OK for less
demanding tasks, maybe, but I didn't have a lot of luck with it.  Better
than nothing, though, and worth a try for sure.

I've recently had pretty good luck with the cygwin+Xfree86 stuff.  A little
flakey on earlier versions but seems stable now.  'Have it setup to login
through KDM on my linux box here, pretty slick under gnome; some display
problems under kde (linux mandrake 8.2).

Xwin32 is a decent commercial package with a free trial version (time limited).
You mentioned that you're a student, presumably in college? If so many
universities, in the US at least, have campus wide licenses for it. Try talking
to your IT department. When I was at UMCP students could get free copies off a
web page.

I'm a student, as in HS student, which means I'm even poorer. :-P

I tried to install linux on this HD, I've had it on here before, but it
doesnt like the HD's bad sectors(there's at least 1 megabyte of them 3/4 of
the way down the disk)..
Of course it's a western digital, what else fails in 2 years..

If the drive is only two years old, RMA it.  WD drives carry a three year
warrantee.  WD is very good about replacing them.  You simply download a
test program and run it.  It will give you an error code that you simply
type into a web page to get an RMA number.  You then ship the drive to them,
and they send you a new one.  Real nice.  ;-)  If you call them on the phone
and provide them with a credit card number, they will cross ship.  As long
as you send the drive in to them, they will not charge your card.

Hurry!  Before it's too late.  ;-)
