Don't you think it's time to upgrade? FC4 has been out of support for 4 years. Fedora 11 is free. – niXar Oct 24 '09 at 11:51

I like Xming. It's an X Window Server that runs on Microsoft Windows.

This combined with putty X11 forwarding over SSH is an excellent solution, and one that doesn't cause my servers to waste time running a GUI – LapTop006 Oct 28 '09 at 11:38

Run a VNC server on your Fedora box, and connect using TightVNC from your windows box. Or, you can use a remote desktop server on Fedora, and connect from a Windows Remote Desktop client.
