X installation question

Here are some newbies questions ;) :

I would like to run applications  in a text mode server that will 
provide graphical interface to some clients through network.
This applications never display anything on the text mode server.

My question : Do I need to install a complete X ( With my few knowlegdes 
of X, it means that  when  I connect  to  the  server,  I will have
an user interface with mouse cursor as in a workstation)? or do I only 
have to install X librairies?

If I only have to install X librairies, what is (are) the package(s) 
from  "http://xorg.freedesktop.org/releases/X11R7.2/src/" do I have to 
install (If there are
some dependencies, I will see by myself ;) Just tell me the main 
packages to install :) )?

Thanks you for your help
