Unless I am reading the putty "wishlist" wrong, putty doesn't support X in its current form


Unix/X (need a local-xterm back end)

Unfortunately at work I must use a windows machine, but Id like to be able

session but I am ignorant when it come to starting an X session remotely.
How do I go about getting X on my machine at work? I know it has to do
with starting X on a new display. Should I use startx -display ?????? and
if so what is that display.
