Let's call the computer that is supposed to be the X terminal 'local', and
call the computer that it will connect to 'remote'.
If you have xdm set up and running with the standard config files on
'remote', there should be no problem. On 'local', just run something like
# X -query <ip_of_remote>
where <ip_of_remote> would be substituted by the ip number or domain name
The only thing that really needs to be installed on 'local' is the X
server. For the fonts you can use the font server installed on 'remote',
but you'd have to set it up properly. If you don't want to do this,
install the fonts on 'local' and let the X server use them.
