Well, Chris, that was a great suggestion!

I can, in fact, run a gui root process on the remote machine, now.

Unfortunately I still can't run qemu so that I can get the console.  I get:

X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  25 (X_SendEvent)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x3e
  Serial number of failed request:  18
  Current serial number in output stream:  21


Any advice on how to setup the remote (headless, mouseless, and keyboardless) 
server to run X?  My brain is fried trying to track down a HOWTO, and the 
wiki is just a half millimeter left of useless.

Thanks for your input!
