Presumably by "Linux 7.2" you mean RedHat.
Which file did you get exactly? I would be very surprised if vnc has not
been packaged for RedHat. After all, it has for Debian.
To start a vncserver, you typically type:
vncserver :A -geometry XxY -depth Z
where A is the display number, X and Y are the geometry of the desired
desktop and Z is the number of bits to use for colour.
