How can I get Putty to display back to my
system? Is there an X Client program
available to help me do this?

Even if i export DISPLAY I still get
"Error: Can't oprn display: hostname.xxx.com:0.0

You need an X server. Install cygwin, it comes with XFree server.

Riding roughshod over some little used trifle like the English language is not a
big deal to an important technology innovator like Microsoft. They did just that
by naming a major project dot-Net (".Net").  Before that, a period followed by a
capital letter was used to mark a sentence boundary. --T. Gottfried, RISKS 21.91

And the enable "X Forwarding" in Putty.  The DISPLAY variable will be
set correctly in the shell, no need to modify it.

Check out NetSarang's products.

Xmanager: PC X Server
Xshell: SSH/Telnet Client
Xftp: SFTP/FTP Client

Xshell is easy to use and much better than Putty. It integrates with
Xmanager, so you don't need to individually start up an X server in
your Windows because Xmanager will be automatically brought up if X
clients are called from Xshell and need to be show up on your Windows.
It also integrates with Xftp so you can make copy/move of files and
directories using Windows drag&drop.

Make you life easier~

PS: Cygwin is too heavy. You don't need to make your Windows to become
Unix server while you can just have an X server instead.
