running a X-Server?

#1
does anyone know how i might be able to log into my linux (slackware 10) box from OSX but rather than using SSH to log into a CLI environment, i want to log into my Gnome Desktop over my LAN
Is there any special software i need to run on that slackware box to be able to do this?
I have heard that if i was doing this from windows i could have used "Cygwin" but is there any alternatives for OSX?

you can run a VNC server either real or tightvnc will work

if you want to connect to the x server then you need to start it with some flags to tell it to listen on a certain port, try man startx to find the right switches
