I can't seem to figure out why I get this response from my Win2K 
installation... I have tried connecting to the server in both App mode and as 
a service from both Linux and Windoze boxes and always get this failure. I 
took a quick look at the source code and I think (I am not a windoze 
programmer) that this may be some NT thing that doesn't translate well into 
windoze 2K:

        if (!CloseDesktop(old_desktop))
            log.Print(LL_INTERR, VNCLOG("SelectHDESK failed to close old 
desktop %x (Err=%d)\n"), old_desktop, GetLastError());
