VNC -identd xstartup issues

Hmmm... Didn't even think of that...

anybody know of a xinetd compatible "middle man" that loads the X server,
loads the programs usually in xstartup, and most importantly asks for a
password? All I'm getting is the grey screen with the curser (doesn't ask
for a password even) and what not...

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks in advance..
