I have Xwindows working on my XP-SP3 32bit workstation as well as my laptop (same Windows) via Cygwin/X

You can gimme a shout off list and maybe I can help.

I use VNC to get to the Unix system once in a login on the local terminal. I've also set up the Xvncserver sessions that allow for a fully running session at all times out in virtual land (not via local console).

Both have worked fine for me as well.
