I don't think you have to. You just have to tell the X programs you want to
run on the server to connect to the X server on the machine you're working
on. Read the following HOWTO:
Suppose you are working on a machine called "desktop.thought.org", and the
server is "server.thought.org". You have to set up the X server on
desktop.thought.org to accept remote connections using xhost(1) or
xauth(1). You have to configure your firewall on desktop of allow connections
on tcp/udp ports 6000-6063 from server.thought.org through.
Then you should be able to login to the server via ssh, and start e.g. an X
terminal on the display of the desktop by giving the following command in the
xterm -display desktop.thought.org:0 &
You could also set the DISPLAY variable on server.thought.org to point to
desktop.thought.org:0. That way you don't have to start every X program with
the -display argument.

AFAIK, you don't need the drivers to do X forwarding. But you _do_ need the
X11 libraries and header files to compile X programs.
