VNC Loging In

I have got VNC Server running on my fedora core system, I can remotely control the pc from anywhere on my network, but only providing I have logged into fedora core first - which means i have to physcially be at the login screen of fedora core machine to login, after shut downs, restarts log offs etc... I know windows is not the topic here, but when windows starts you can use VNC and see the login screen where you can enter the username and password for the machine, can Fedora Core do this? if so, how?
this is not a login issue with VNC, I can log into VNC no problems, i want to be able to see the login screen of my fedora system through VNC, but VNC doesnt give me the option to connect to machine when logged off the fedora system

You should be able to setup the VNC server to run as a background process on startup (although you might have to run it as root). Try adding the startup command to your rc.local script (which is called before X is started). And make sure it is in a background process (so the start command would be "somevnccommand &", note the &).
