Starting X windows from a remote terminal

How to I configure Xwin32 to run  x windows from a remote terminal using a telnet session over tcp/ip.  I am
using Red Hat linux 5.2 and my network assignments are:
my ip: 200.200.200.3
server ip: 200.200.200.1
This is a virtual home network setting, the pc and the server are connected using a hub.

if you are using tcsh as your shell:

set DISPLAY 200.200.200.3:0.0

then you can run X programs by entering their names in the telnet session. (you will not get your complete desktop by default)

I need to know how to start X windows.  Not just one application.  
for example type
$startx

to have the session started remotely.

That is not how it works. You can only display the client area from the applications in that fashion. If you want your entire desktop exported, you should check out VNC.
