Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ok, so I put the this line of code in /etc/rc.local...
x11vnc -rfbauth /home/admin/vncpass -forever -bg
but the program is still not starting up when I hit runlevel 5. I copied and pasted the exact same line in bash to see if the command simply had some syntax error I wasn't seeing, but the command worked fine. Last but not least, I looked through all my system logs, but none of them are reporting any errors. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
I used ps aux | grep x11vnc to check if it was running, and it is not. Also, I followed ygloo's sugjestion and put the full path in rc.local, rebooted, and did ps again, and its still not running. I can start it manually, but I want to set it up as a headless server.
