How do you run tightvnc server on RHEL so that it matches your gui screen?

I am running vncserver, which I got to run, but I was hoping the interface on Bill's box, would be identical to the one on my linux box. Instead I get this convoluted interface which is pretty tough to use. Is there a way that I can get my tightvnc to look and work exactly as if I have my monitor hook up on my linux box?

As far as I know NO. You may want to take a look at x11vnc. It does exactly what you want.
