Hi All

I'm a COMPLETE newbie here. I just got RedHat 6.2 running with dhcpcd.

1) I want to get VNC running so that it *turns on* when the computer starts.
I have -NO- idea how or where to do this.

2) When i try to manually start vncserver from the command, i get the following....

<snip>
[root "at" leia /root]# vncserver
New 'X' desktop is leia:1
Starting applications specified in /root/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /root/.vnc/leia:1.log
[root "at" leia /root]# more /root/.vnc/leia:1.log

[root "at" leia /root]# vncserver -kill :1
Killing Xvnc process ID 1006
[root "at" leia /root]# 
<snip>

i'm vary confussed and have no idea what is going on. can some people please help.
I tried searching the archives, but they were very confussing and SOOO many....

Also, if i need OTHER programs (like this 100dpi fonts thing!) can i have URL's also please.
I've only been using unix for a few days so i'm VERY NEW AT THIS.

Sorry to sound lame, but i'm in dire straights.

Thanks to all those wonderful people who can help.

Sincerly: Jussy.
