QEMU Windows and X forwarding

my Goal is to setup a FreeBSD Server that hosts about 5 Images of  
(licensed) Windows XP, which i made either using QEMU or Win4BSD.  
Those Images then i want to make accessible to old Macintosh PowerPC  
Machines, so the Users can access one or two Applications that only  
run under Windows XP. I would like to know from anyone in a similar  
situation how to accomplish this best.

Currently, I pretty much have it setup for myself, so when i open X11  
on my PowerPC Machine, and type in ssh -X server_address windows_xp ,  
i do get an instance of Windows XP on my PowerPC Machine.

The trouble here for now is server and network performance. I would  
like to know if anyone of you has any suggestions for me on how i can  
make the network load as little as possible. I read that freenx is  
offering really good responsiveness, but unfortunately it is marked as  
broken on my System using FreeBSD Version 6.3.

Thanks and best regards,
David Schulz
