It's been a while, but try this:

Try running X with this option "X -query x.x.x.x" where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the other linux machine.  I know this will work with Solaris, but I'm not sure on Linux.  Check out startx manpage.

The simplest form is
DISPLAY=ip:0.0; export DISPLAY
where ip is the TCP/IP address of the machine you want X to diaplay. Make sure the machine DISPLAY is allowed to use the X server.
