There are several ways to do this. You can use the builtin KDE Remote Desktop 
application. This is a framebuffer application which allows you to remotely 
control the _current_ desktop of the remote PC.

My preference is to start a new remote session. There is an option in Yast 
(Suse 9.2) to "Allow remote graphical login". I have noted somewhere which 
config files this actually changes. Once you do that, from the command line 
of the remote PC you can do 

X -query remotepc

and you should get the greeter for the remote PC. If you tell a little more 
about your setup and what you are trying to do, I may be able to give you 
more details.
