Kevin,

You're still over my head. Conceptually I get what you're saying, but
applying is different. Assume I'm walking to the console for the very first
time, never saw Linux before and I'm sitting at # sign. VNC is installed,
but no displays started. What do I do? What lines do I type? I know this is
fustrating for people who know unix, so please bear with me.

# step 1
# step 2
# step 3

Thanks,
James
