VNC server as unprivileged user


Is there a way to start VNC to run as an unprivileged user (or to get it to let you log in to it when you connect)? I run it as root and when it connects I have to log in to VNC as root, but there's a program that I want to run across it that won't run as root.

Thanks,
Jeff

Well, I found out that you can just run the vncserver from a different user to run it as that user, but is there anyway to make it so you can log in to it so I can have one instance of vncserver running but anyone can log into it with their own username / password?
