It seems that you are connecting to a running KDE session.  That session will 
locally be required to grant permission for access.  The first  X session 
will be 0 which is the default for TightVNC if you do not specify a session 
You do not want to be running KDE when you connect with VNC.  You need a local 
VNC service running from xinetd to start kdm, or the Mandrake equivalent.  
This will permit login to a new KDE session via VNC.
