I am using Mandrake 8.2
I have successfully start the VNC session at startup
But I cannot have any window manager in the VNC session.
If I manually start a VNCserver, there is window manager in
the VNC session, any idea?

Thanks a lot

I found such a setup in RedHat 7.2. Looks nice for a start but the setup as
described in http://www.sourcecodecorner.com/articles/vnc/linux.asp has much
more advantages.
