          ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  <-- the error is here    

This problem occurs on RH 6.0 too. The solution is very simple: in the
<root>/Xvnc/config/cf create a file host.def. This file need only 2
lines:

#define i386Architecture        YES
#include <linux.cf>


(I assume of course that you work on an intel/amd machine, the other
possible architectures are AlphaArchitecture and Mc68020Architecture)

I hope that will help you.

Ehud.
