I've installed Debian 2.0 on another machine and while I was at it I tried
out the vncserver package that was provided with it. Works like a charm.
Well done!

I have to check the Perl version on the 1.3.1 system, and I'll provide you
with some debug information ASAP.

Bye & thanks for all the help,
