My systems
P400 and 486
There are lots of ways what I do is:
On the P400 open an xterm
P400$ xhost 486
P400$ telnet -a 486
486$ Password:
486$ tkdesk ( or what ever else you might want to run 

If I'm going to be working on the 486 for a while I'll:
startx with no wm only an xterm. I've got a user set up with the .xinitrc for 
P400$xhost 486
P400$telnet -a 486

good luck
