That's perfect (From vnc point of view). After you started vncserver on the
unix machine, you can also start `xterm -display :1` (replace :1 with the
number vncserver is using) Now you have the xterm in the vncserver window.
If the xterm does not show in the gray screen, there is something wrong with
vnc (or the security is to high)
Now try `vncserver -query localhost`. That will show a login screen as at
you solaris machine.
Then setup http://www.sourcecodecorner.com/articles/vnc/linux.asp and you're
(The origional vnc setup should alter ~/.vnc/startx or something like that
to have your window manager startup. But then I need to know your window
manager and how to start it manually)
