vncserver errors on FC4


I am running a fully up-to-date version of FC4 on one of my machines. I want to use VNC to access the Fedora machine from a Windows desktop in my office. I installed vncserver using yum and started it up as described in the read-me. When I look at my process list Xvnc is running. However, when I try to connect using the VNC viewer on my Windows box I fail to connect. Looking in the vncserver log, I see the following:

Sat Mar 4 14:13:14 2006
vncext: VNC extension running!
vncext: Listening for VNC connections on port 5901
vncext: Listening for HTTP connections on port 5801
vncext: created VNC server for screen 0
error opening security policy file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xserver/SecurityPolicy
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/, removing from li
st!
Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/, removing from li
st!

I took a look in the directory listed and there is no file called SecurityPolicy

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks!

Dale
