vnc into current console session

Anybody know the settings needed so i can vnc into the current console session of my vncserver?

Currently i am able to vnc into a gnome session, however, its different from the session logged into my vnc server box.

My Xstartup script is as follows:

-x /etc/vnc/startup && exec /etx/vnc/xstartup
-r $HOME/.Xresources && xrdb &HOME/X.resources
xsetroot solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$vncdesktop desktop" & gnome-sessioin

Since this script controls the remote session, i know i must edit it, maybe the last part where it says "gnome-session"

Any Ideas??

On gnome in F8 it is ->System->Preferences->Internet and Network->Remote Desktop, check allow others to view your Desktop.
