vncviewer is the solution. you can see if it is installed by

$rpm -q vncviewer

if it is installed then you can share desktop by

$vncviewer <other computer ip>

it it is not installed then you need install it, this may help you- http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/linux-tutorials-howtos-reference-material/971-installing-running-vnc-redhat-rpm-linux.html

You can set up "remote desktop" feature on Linux using VNC. Part 2 and 3 in http://fclose.com/b/638/ introduce how to use VNC in a SSH tunnel. You can also use it directly.

You can install VNC server and viewer by

# yum install vnc vnc-server


# yum install tigervnc-server tigervnc
