Minimal X11 Client on CentOS/REHL 5

To run X client apps remotely on CentOS5 from your X server requires installation of a couple of small packages.
yum install xorg-x11-apps — installed with dependancies to get basic X11 client components. Also includes xeyes and xclock, useful for testing.
yum install xorg-x11-xauth — needed for ssh authentication.
ssh -X user@client
