Centos and Vmware

I have a CentOS 4.2 machine, with GDM and TWM installed. This is a minimal install.

I have installed VMWare 5.5 under a user account. What I want is:

The machine to boot, launch VNCServer with two VM running in it.

Is this possible?

Thank You

use vmrun :
bin/vmrun start /Path/to/your/VM.vmx
vmrun --help

Make an init script and "voilà", don't know if VMWare will lauch with no user connected tho :/

I figured it out. I edited gdm.conf to enable auto login I then installed X11Vnc so that I could VNC to the console then I setup a script to launch the VMs

Thank you for the reply, in a way it is what I did.
