Can't VNC into XFCE on CentOS

When attempting to vnc into my Centos 5.2 box running xfce 4, it only displays the standard x11 window with the clock and not the full desktop. It seems to only work when I vnc into the local sesssion at display 0 but not for the other user sessions. Any ideas?

xorg or vnc config

Its prolly a config problem. some distros make only root able to log into remotely, then u have to change xorg.allow? or something like that to allow all users to be able to startxfce.

Enjoy with this. If unable to get, please post it again.
