RFC - Windows VNC server configuration issues

I have done this with great success, and not just with VNC either.  All my
software distribution is via Group Policy.

The problem I ran into using Group Policy Distribution and VNC is installing
the service.  Simply assigning VNC to the machines works fine, but if I try to
also install the WinVNC service I get errors.

I have not completed my testing, so maybe I will get it to work someday...
