Talking Tunneling VNC through SSH

I'm trying to figure out how to use SSH to make my VNC connection more secure. I'm running FC7 and VNC and SSH are already installed. I just don't know how to use them together.
Does anyone know where I could find a good how-to or could anybody help?

I found a link hope it might be helpful to u
This tutorial shows you how to use OpenSSH to tunnel VNC traffic through the public Internet (over TCP port 5900) so that
you can remote access and control your home Windows g PC from a remote location, under the strong encryption of OpenSSH.

The encryption used by OpenSSH can be either AES, 3DES, Blowfish, cast-128, arcfour (RC4)
The default encryption (cipher) is AES-128-CBC.
You may get some performance increase by preferring the blowfish encryption cipher:
On the ssh server side, you can force a particular encryption algorithm preference by adding a line such as
Ciphers blowfish-cbc,aes128-cbc,3des-cbc
to the server configuration file /etc/sshd_config........
