Not the answer you were looking for, but have you considered VNC?

apt-cache search vnc

You can use it to create an X session on the faster computer, and just
run the client on the older computer. It has the added bonus that you
can shut down the terminal, restart, and all you're work is right where
you left it. I run a mixed network (3 Debian, 2 Win2k, 1 WinNT), and I
can 'view' my session from any computer in the network. It can also be
tunneled through ssh for security.
