VNC and rc.local


Currently whenever I want to VNC into my Fedora box, I frist SSH in and type
vncserver :25 -name MyLinux -geometry 800x600
and then I open the VNC client and VNC in.

But I don't want to SSH in anymore... so I was thinking of putting a line like this in my /etc/rc.local file

vncserver :25 -name MyLinux -geometry 800x60

also, i opened up and forward port 5925 to my Fedora

but it doesn't work... so what should I put in the startup script ?
