HELP!!! (XFree vs. AcceleratedX vs. Xappeal vs. Other)

The following is a real situation in need of advice...

Suppose you had a hot PC (Pentium II/266MHz, 21" monitor, etc.) and
wanted to use it occasionally as an xterminal to remotely run unix
from the network.  What software would you choose for the task and why?
