Yes indeed... your Linux box should be running a VNC server. However, this can be done in multiple ways... which leads to your second question. That one I cannot properly answer -- only suggest the location of configuration options for my preferred way of serving VNC connectivity.
After combing the web for instructions, I configured VNC to be automatically started by creating "/etc/xinetd.d/vnc" and writing therein a "service vnc10" section, which among other variables tells "server_args=:42 -inetd -once -query localhost -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16
But that... is merely one way. Still, it appears usable under Mandrake 9.2. Of course, making it usable did not pass that easily... I likewise had to enable some options under the "[Xdmcp]" section in "/usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc".
I also haven't resolved some issues with automatic starting of services. Connectivity only appears after I have manually run kdm. Should I skip that, I do get the X11 "grey screen" with a responsive cursor, but no KDE login prompt.
(While the starting of "kdm" should not be hard to script, I am somewhat perfectionist and haven't done that -- still hoping to know what I *really* ought to do.
