Thank you CBee!
The instructions you mentioned at
http://www.sourcecodecorner.com/articles/vnc/linux.asp are awesome, and all
works great now. One important note (and this may be related to the
problems I was initially having) is that for the above method to work, you
need to set initdefault in inittab to "5". I had it at "3" because I
prefer the console login, but it is a small price to pay for such a cool
interface to vnc!
