KDE2 and vnc

I'm trying to setup a server on my linux box and connect from my win2k PC. I
get the login screen but then get a patterned grey screen. I am assuming the
kde is not starting. I have tried to set -depth = 16 in both the vncserver
file and from the command line but it always returns depth 8 in the log file
after I try to connect. Any ideas?

Here's my vncserver variables:

$geometry = "800x600";
$depth = 16;
$vncClasses = "/usr/local/vnc/classes";
$vncUserDir = "$ENV{HOME}/.vnc";
$xauthorityFile = "$ENV{HOME}/.Xauthority";

Here's my xstartup file

#!/bin/sh

xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
 -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
twm &
/usr/bin/startkde &

Here's the log file

I did have two copies of vncserver. One in /usr/bin and one in
/usr/local/bin. So I removed the first one.
