I second the recommendation for NX, especially if you want a full desktop.

There is a better version of NX in the upcoming 5.2 release in the 
extras repo.

The major difference between nx/freenx and vnc is that NX is compressed, 
so the desktop is pretty much like running it on the machine, where vnc 
(and normal X forwarding via ssh) are much slower.  I use a remote NX 
desktop all the time, and it really is just like being on the machine.
