Different Linux session views from W2k?

The simplest way would be to have both of you use vncviewer
to the same session, using the "-shared" option. Note that
useof "vncserver" on linux starts a new X server, and thus
necessarily a new X session, independent of the physical
console (which is managed by a different X server). So
the simplest way to be seeing the same desktop is to have
the linux user run vncviewer. Normally, that'd be
though it needs to be whatever display number vncserver says
it started for you, whether it's "1" or not.

Probably the most robust option would be x4vnc; I expect it to give
the best performance, and should give a better match in terms of
implemented features of the X server than vncviewer to an Xvnc.
