VNC server and Virtual PC resolution


Ok everyone I've got two issues at hand.

1. On my new laptop, I installed VPC. (virtual PC_) and decided to install Mandrake on the Virtual PC. Once I load the install files, everything goes well until the first reboot. When the OS is trying to boot, it shows the normal startup scripts running in clear text then changes the resolution to the defaulted size. If causes the picture to blur, and stretch out. Now i know ive changed it before but I forget how to. Anyone else know//

2. Im trying to run VNC on a Red hat box. Everytime I try to create a passwd file, it gives me an error where shared libraries can't be found. Any ideas?

Thanks

Ok this looks like a pretty good walk through. What is the proper procedure of installing VNC? Everytime I try I still get an output that says VNC is not installed.

Something like;

rpm -Uvh vnc*.rpm
yum install vnc-server vnc

The rpm command is from wherever the vnc and vnc-server packages resides (CD/DVD/local hard drive). The yum command is used if your Red Hat box is yum enabled (has yum installed and configured). Do the check as suggested on the guide (the link provided - first page)

So what if I don't have yum? How exactly do I install this? Bear with me, Im fairly new to linux. Let's say, I've downloaded the TightVNC .rpm file. It is residing in the /home folder. Then what?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

Type something like; rpm -ivh <the_name_of_the_file_in_full_here>

FYI: all versions of Red Hat for many years has come with both vnc and vnc-client rpm files.
