Ok. Created other users in the system with useradd/passwd
Edited the vncserver file in /etc/sysconfig to look something like this:
VNCSERVERS="1:jdimpson 2:phred 3:sysadmin"
It shut down my root session & daemon never came back up. I regret doing this ; there's no one that can start the vncserver at the console until the day after tomorrow.
The passwd file then only exists for root. ok, Just manually create a passwd file in the user's home directories and that would do it? OR does a password has to be written/specified manually in that file?

Yes, each user needs a passwd file.

No, /root/.vnc/passwd is only used for the root user. Notice the "su -"
in front of the command. This changes to the assigned user and starts
Using their example of jdimpson, you would need a
/home/jdimpson/.vnc/passwd file. If this file doesn't exist, the jdimpson
VNC session wouldn't start.
