Using VNC to connect to various desktops

I am fairly new to VNC and am trying to set it up so that I can monitor
multiple desktops of help desk staff.  I have tried to search the archives
and have not found the answer I am looking for (just may not be searching on
the right terms) and so have decided to seek the help of some of you.  The
problem I am having is that if I log onto the network via any of these
desktops and set them up with passwords, when held desk staff come to work
and log onto a desktop with their own network accounts the VNC information
is not what I set it to (I get an authentication failure when I try to log
onto the machine).  It appears that the setup information is user specific
and not desktop specific which is how I would have thought it to be.  Each
of the desktops involved are running on Win2000.  Can anyone tell me if this
is just how VNC is or is there a way for me to set the passwords on the
desktop and have them remain no matter who logs onto the machine?
