Question Run Vino-server at boot (GDM3 DEBIAN SQUEEZE)

I'm trying to get Vino-server which comes out of the box in Debian Squeeze to run at boot so I can remotely login to it from the loginscreen.

Already googled it and can only find solutions for gdm and not gdm3. I'm not planning to go back to gdm or choose another vnc-server.

Does someone has the knowledge to help me please?

Managed to do that.
First of all, you must configure your vino server by running vino-preferences as root.
Then, append the line
/usr/lib/vino/vino-server --sm-disable &
in file /etc/gdm3/Init/Default
before the line 'exit 0'
And finally, you must prevent vino from being run second time after logging in by disabling it's autorun in System->Parameters->Autorun (or something like that, my installation has different locale)
