cheers for the help earlier.
but i am now trying to get vnc server to run automatically when a user logs in.
its only a home network so i have set my linux machine (RH9) to automatically log my user account in when the machine starts up that works ok.
what i am struggling with is getting the vncserver command to run automatically after my user account has logged in. i found a few posts similar but none of them have worked.
any help would be much appreciated
