Making X terminals out of a PC

Well I was trying to configure an Old PC having Win 3.1 to speak X with my UNIX server . I looked at notes , Looks like Debian Linux gives a base tarball to help boot of a floppy and talk to the XDMCP server .

Well I was just hoping if there are other open source tools out there which would help configure the same for me .

Anyone to share their Remote X experiences...
