Thank you for this most helpfull information. I have one additional
question:   In your su statement below after the vncserver statement, you
mention <other options>. Can you give me some direction in finding out
what these other options are?

Thanks!

print @c=map chr $_+100,(6,17,15,16,-68,-3,10,11,16,4,1,14,-68,12,1,14,8,
-68,4,-3,-1,7,1,14,-68,6,11,15,1,12,4,-68,-22,11,14,14,5,15,-90);

It uses whatever your default window manager is, provided you run it as
yourself. If you're running it in startup scripts, I'd suggest using: 
     su -l <username> -c 'vncserver <other options> -name <username>'
to start VNC. This way, it executes *AS* that user.

FWIW, I'm using it to remote 2 sessions off a Linux box. Nice work.
