Question VNC on Fedora Core 2

I used to have redhat 9 run vncserver at boot and when connecting a vncviewer from windows I had a gnome login and after login the desktop and all just fine.

Lately I installed Fedora core 2 with vncserver but canít get the functionality I had.

Can someone point me or list in simple steps what needs to be done on the Fedora box for it to have VNC serving gnome at boot?

Also is there a certain viewer (tight, real etc) that will work better then others?

Thanks in advance!

in that terminal that is launched in that base X server, run the following

killall -9 twm

this will kill the existing window manager and start up gnome for you,

to get it to do this each time you vnc, do this:

edit ~/.vnc/xstartup and do the following

take out the "# " from the 2 lines reading
exec /etc/X11/ ...

then add a # at the beginning of the lines that read
xterm -geometry ....
twm &
