VNC Server login issue


Hey there
I have install and configured a vnc server on my Linux box using this tutorial
I can login but not into the servers set in the /etc/sysconfig/vncservers

Code:
VNCSERVERS="2:Deluka"
VNCSERVERARGS[2]="-geometry 800x600 -depth 16"
If i'm not mistaking i could be able to logging using 192.168.1.4:5902.
Just to be sure i checked the /etc/xinetd.d/vncts.
this is what i have there.
Code:
# default: off
# To use this remote vnc method: 
# * Allow local accesss to Xserver/XDMCP, add to /etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess:
#   localhost	
# Then, this server is accessible at vncviewer <server>:0-5
service vnc-1024x768x16
{
	disable		= no
	type		= UNLISTED
	port		= 5900
	socket_type	= stream        
	wait		= no
	user		= nobody 
	group		= tty
	server		= /usr/bin/vncts
	server_args	= -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16
}
service vnc-800x600x16
{
	disable		= no
	type		= UNLISTED
	port		= 5901
        socket_type     = stream
        wait            = no
        user            = nobody
	group           = tty
        server          = /usr/bin/vncts
        server_args     = -geometry 800x600 -depth 16
}
service vnc-640x480x16
{
	disable		= no
	type		= UNLISTED
 	port		= 5902
        socket_type     = stream
        wait            = no
        user            = nobody
        group           = tty
        server          = /usr/bin/vncts
        server_args     = -geometry 640x480 -depth 16
}
service vnc-1024x768x8
{
	disable		= no
	type		= UNLISTED
	port		= 5903
        socket_type     = stream
        wait            = no
        user            = nobody
        group           = tty
        server          = /usr/bin/vncts
        server_args     = -geometry 1024x768 -depth 8 
}
service vnc-800x600x8
{
	disable		= no
	type		= UNLISTED
	port		= 5904
        socket_type     = stream
        wait            = no
        user            = nobody
        group           = tty
        server          = /usr/bin/vncts
        server_args     = -geometry 800x600 -depth 8 
}
service vnc-640x480x8
{
	disable		= no
	type		= UNLISTED
	port		= 5905
        socket_type     = stream
        wait            = no
        user            = nobody
        group           = tty
        server          = /usr/bin/vncts
        server_args     = -geometry 640x480 -depth 8 
}
So for i as far i can tell everything could be oke.
But the only way i can log is by using vncserver :6 and login remotely by using 192.168.1.4:5906 where i log directly into the root.
Those anyone have any idea what's going on here ?
Sorry for the double post can't seem to remove them

VNC is just so so so horrible as you can see there... why use such a massively poor system when good alternatives like NX are available?

Talking Solved

Needed to learn to set this VNC up for a my Server+ Training.
Don't now what NX was till you told me.
Well been playing around with with the settings and solved it.

I now can login only to the preset server and everything seems to work.
For the peeps having the same problem here is the content of the /etc/xinetd.d/vncts file.
No more errors on startup and no more login problems

# default: off
# To use this remote vnc method: 
# * Allow local accesss to Xserver/XDMCP, add to /etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess:
#   localhost
