I would say the "actual stand" would be explained by the documention for
VNC 3.3.3r9 at http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/winvnc.html :
"WinVNC runs fine on NT3.51 but the absence of a system tray means that
the Properties dialog cannot be accessed. In addition, Ctrl-Alt-Del
from clients cannot be correctly interpreted under NT 3.51, limiting
WinVNC's usefulness when run as a service on this platform. It also
runs on NT5 beta. If you have a choice we recommend NT4.0 with the
latest service packs installed. "
