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.

Does this help:
The simplest approach is to make your VNC startup file a link to your normal X startup file. This is done as follows:
1. Move into your vnc configuration directory ( cd ~/.vnc)
2. Delete the startup file which is already there (rm xstartup)
3. Make a link to your normal X startup file (ln -s ../.xinitrc ./xstartup)
4. Switch back to your home directory (cd)
5. Make your .xinitrc file executable (chmod u+x .xinitrc)
Of course, you can also create a custom startup file if you prefer, by editing .vnc/xstartup.
I'm wanting VNC to run at startup as well. I put this path - "/usr/local/bin/vncserver" in my rc.local file and rebooted but VNC still didn't start. I can start it just fine manually but for whatever reason it won't start automatically. Is there some sort of log I can view to see if any errors occurred while VNC tried to start?
