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.

sounds like the server failed to load. for a start i don't think you used the right command line. vncserver won't "share" anything. it will create a NEW X session. see the vncserver docs for more details abou it's use.
sounds like you want to use x11vnc to export a real display.
the server is here (on my left ;-) ) and i can boot it, and work on it fine,...
but the vnc server is in the gui included i think? I needn't start it with any command...
( whats the port to connect the console? *g* << ^^ )
( must i share the console before i can connect 2 it ? )
vncviewer doesn't exist in telnet???? what does that mean?? why has telnet come into the equation?
like i said, the connection is likely to be being refused as it does not exist. you can NOT use vncserver in the way you are trying to, i.e. to just instantly hook into the currently running X server. not going to happen. using "vncserver" to start a vnc server, will create a NEW server, you don't want to specify which display, and if you do want to, then if you're already logged on to X locally, :0 will not work as it's in use already.
