I'm not sure if this will work as I don't know if there are any files besides the .app file itself, but I've uploaded X11.app to my dropbox. Here's the link:
I tried xquartz and it still didn't allow me to open up the .exe file.
The zip that brian gave me worked, but didn't allow me to open up the .exe file either.
Thanks for the reply Dave, Brian, and a Mac User.
I don't want to spend the money on another installation CD. (I sold my family pack to a friend).
Anyways, is there a way to open up .exe files without X11?
Thanks in advance

Bad move, both from a technical standpoint and a legal one. If you sold the family pack to a friend, then you no longer have a legal copy of Snow Leopard and must buy a new copy or you're operating illegally. The license for Mac OS X goes with the installer disk, which now belongs to your friend. If you only have 10.6 on one system, though, you can buy a single license of Snow Leopard.
And as I said, it's quite possible that at some point you'll need to do maintenance on your system or reinstall the OS, and that will require that you have the Mac OS X installation disk.
As to the root problem, you're asking a question you really don't need answered. exe files are Windows files (normally they're applications), not UNIX/X11 files. If you have .exe files you need to run, you need to be running Windows via one of the various methods.
