Remote gnome session

Hello Sirs/Madams,

I am trying to view my exisiting gnome session on Fedora8 remotely from my Windoze XP laptop.

More details: Well my main PC is running fedora8, and I login into the gnomesession, work in it & switch off my monitor. Sometimes I like to view/continue the same gnome-session running on MainPC from my windows Laptop... Both laptop & the main pc are networked.

And I tried following things, but they dont seem to work properly or try to creates a *new* gnome-session.

1st method
I ssh from laptop to my fedora box & did the following
$ export DISPLAY=win32.laptop.IP:0.0
$ xclock
$ gnome-session

I ssh from laptop to my fedora box & did the following
$ vncserver
$ vncserver

New 'mainpc:2 (g)' desktop is mainpc:2

Starting applications specified in /home/g/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /home/g/.vnc/mainpc:2.log

and then connect via window's vncviewer and I get a
TWM/Xterm or somthing. :-(
