ok thanks, trying to do that now – Charbel Feb 15 '11 at 12:01

If you just need an XServer and not the rest of Cygwin, consider Xming. It's a port of the Cygwin X Server to native Windows, using mingw. It may be easier for you to run. It also has an integrated version of putty to make opening X over ssh easier.
