Angry VNC on startup

Hi guys and girls

Im a total newbie to all this linux stuff and yesterday i installed mandrake 10.1 and managed to get it to act as a home web server but now i need to run VNC on it because i havent got a spare monitor... I know this is possible but just reading around on the web there seems to be many ways to do it but nobody gives a clear guide to a newbie like my self.

Please help

I'm not sure if this will help. I have never used Mandrake, but I found this on the web.

If you've got VNC installed you can just put a line in the file /etc/sysconfig/vncservers.

I'm going to pimp my own tutorial, which is here:

Since I haven't yet found a better one.
