It's pretty straight forward. In the putty config section:
Connection->SSH->X11 put a tick in 'Enable X11 Forwarding'.

On the remote host (assuming openssh on RHEL 4) in
/etc/ssh/sshd_config make sure there is a line like this:

X11Forwarding yes

and restart the ssh daemon.

That's all I had to do. Also worked on Slackware 10.x/11.x using
slackware packages and personally compiled binaries.
