Unhappy VncServer - Startup issues

Was wondering wether somebody esle has come across this before, and found a solution.

Have Redhat 7.0 and Mandrake 8.0 running on two machines.
I've chosen to autostart Vncserver on startup, which it attempts to do.
As the startup reaches the point whereby it start to load Vncserver, it will hang there until I push the Enter key.
Whereby it displays a password problem and continues on.

Is there somewhere in the setup of VNC, or maybe a file whereby I can manually type in the password so Vncserver will load automatically without myself pressing enter each time at startup???

Thanks .....

you must first run vncserver as root from a terminal where it will ask for the password, after that it will be ok
