Although VNC is installed by default, it needs a little configuration before you can use it.

Firstly:
Code:
vncpasswd
and enter a password for the current user to access VNC.
Secondly:
Code:
cd /etc/sysconfig
nano vncservers
There is an example config for you but essentially to let user 'root' access VNC with a desktop of size 1024x768, you would need the following two lines in this file:
Code:
VNCSERVERS="1:root"
VNCSERVERARGS[1]="-geometry 1024x768"
Then issue the command
Code:
service vncserver restart
and you're good to go.

To connect to this, in your VNC client, you need to enter the address as <ip address>:1 - the :1 signifies desktop number 1, as you have configured in your vncservers config file. In this file, you could add extra lines like:
Code:
VNCSERVERS="2:some-user"
VNCSERVERARGS[2]="-geometry 1024x768"
This would allow some-user to connect to desktop 2 by connecting to <ip address>:2

Hope this helps.

VNC settings using GUI

If you are using KDE, you can also make the settings easily from the control center.

Just go to Remote Desktop.

I don't exactly remember Gnome but I guess there is a package that enables making VNC setting through GUI.

Good luck!
