VNC will not go to full scree

Yeah, I found it deathly slow, too.  The FAQ has a whole
speal of things to unbusy the desktop and speed it up,
including some stipple-avoiding tidbits for twm (but
I suppose the same applies for all wm's).

TightVNC (www.tightvnc.com) works for me when I
only have dial-up speeds.  Also, my firewall slowed
things down unless I restart it after establishing the
VNC link (ZoneAlarm).

Good luck.
