I guess I will need to add xinetd to my little FAG/mini-howto for inetd.
You can use -inetd in teh Xinetd. in some ways teh configuration is a
little longer but easier in teh long run most likly.This should work for
a basic xinetd set up.:

vnc   5950/tcp                        # VNC

You will need to add this to either /etc/xinetd.d/ or /etc/xinetd.d/vnc.
( I am not sure if xinetd.d is a dir. or a file)

service vnc
        socket_type             = stream
        protocol                = tcp
        wait                    = no
        user                    = nobody
        server                  = /usr/bin/Xvnc
        server_args             = Xvnc -inetd -query gary -once 

Thsi should get you up and running. I have not had a chance to work aon
a new RH box. So I have not directly worked with xinetd
