trouble with .vnc creation


Hello, I am trying to get vnc to work on a new server install and when I execute vncpasswd it does not creat the .vnc folder - anybody know what I'm doing wrong?

[root@localhost naloi]# cd /etc/rc.d/init.d
[root@localhost init.d]# ./xfs start
Starting xfs: [ OK ]
[root@localhost init.d]# cd /usr/bin
[root@localhost bin]# ./vncpasswd
Password:
Verify:
[root@localhost bin]# cd /home/naloi
[root@localhost naloi]# ls -lat
ls: cannot access .gvfs: Permission denied
