I manually start vncserver at the moment when I need it.  I usually do this
for new progs and once they are running successfully, i usually add them to
/etc/rc3.d/ or /etc/rc.local

Ok, this is what I will be missing as far as your setup goes.  my
/etc/xinetd.d/ doesnt have vnc and this is one area I havent looked at yet -
I am fairly new to admin under linux.  Do you think this would help? If so,
can you give me a helpful hint as to how I can start this?
