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.

I followed the instructions, did the make install, it took about five minutes and exited. BUT there's no x11vnc command in me usr/bin directory and the command doesn't work. I'm guessing it didn't install correctly.
What do I need to run this? I have to be able to see running applications just like the Windows implementation of VNC, none if this multiple desktop stuff.
I'm using Mandriva 2006.
so, /home/justin/x11vnc-0.8/x11vnc/x11vnc is not what your looking for
ahj ha... I went into that directory and into a subdir called x11vnc and ran a ./x11vnc. It worked.
I found out the option to set it to port 5900, and to keep it running so that everytime I exit it doesn't stop the process -forever I think.
Now I have to figure out how to UP the compression so its faster, I know it'll look worse.
and btw... you up the compression on the client.. not the server side.
I figured that out.
The only problem is it doesn't seem to be as good as TightVNC. I'll check out the thing you suggested BUT, I have to have it on one port since I would like to punch through a router.
Unable to update medium; it will be automatically disabled.
...retrieving failed: curl failed: exited with 22 or signal 0
It's impossible to retrieve the list of new packages from the media
`SoS-2006'. Either this update media is misconfigured, and in this case
you should use the Software Media Manager to remove it and re-add it in order
to reconfigure it, either it is currently unreachable and you should retry
