The default vnc server on unix machines (Xvnc) gives a new, independent
display (numbering from :1 upwards). It does not do any thing with the
display at the console (display :0).
The x0rfbserver is an alternate vnc-server that gives access to the console
display (display :0), provided that it has an accessable framebuffer device
(/dev/fb or such), which is the case on most unix workstations.
For machines using XFree86 (version 4) there is also a vnc module available
for most display adapters. This might give a better performance than the
x0rfbserver. (see: http://xf4vnc.sourceforge.net/)
