Sorry for the newbie questions, but I am having trouble with your VNC setup 
procedure & need some clarification:

http://www.sourcecodecorner.com/articles/vnc/linux.asp#vncserver.inetd

I am running Red Hat 7.2, gdm

##########
Step 6:
6) Update inetd configuration for the services to enable (based on 
/etc/services)
                                a) inetd - append contents of 
'vncserver.inetd' to '/etc/inetd.conf'
                                b) xinetd - copy 'vncserver.xinetd' to 
'/etc/xinetd.d' (RH 7.2 (not available in my RH6.2)
and
The file below is vncserver.inetd. This should be added to the end of 
/etc/inetd.conf. Please note the path. In this
                      document the path is /usr/local/bin/Xvnc. This will 
need to be modified based on your own system.
##########

- Do I need to do both (a) and (b) ?  I have no /etc/inetd.conf file to 
append anything to...

Step  "Our last file is for Redhat 7.2"  (almost missed this one)

##########
This should be copied to the end of /etc/xinet.d. Again, modify the paths 
to suit your
                      system. This is the vncserver.xinetd.
##########

/etc/xinet.d is a directory, not a file.  Do I place this as a file 
/etc/xinet.d/vncserver.xinetd ?
