Very new to vnc

Well, for me, I'm using this:
su -l <username> -c 'vncserver :5 -name <username> -depth 16 -geometry
800x600'

which tells it to use 16-bit color depth (matches my monitor at work) with
800x600 resolution (so it fits within the 1024x768 monitor).

I really don't know what you tell vncserver so that it prints the options,
but doing 'vncserver -kill' at the commandline does, indeed, print out all
your options.
