Depending on what you'd like to run you can just do this...

ssh -X <host id>

This enables X forwarding via ssh tunnel so you can run things such as
Veritas or other such applications. I'm not sure whatelse you'd like to do..
you can export the whole desktop from the Sun to SUSE but that would be SUCH
