I am running vncserver on a Red Hat Linux 5.3 box and attempting to 
connect from a Windows Vista desktop.  When I run the VNC Viewer and log 
in, I get a plain gray screen with a terminal window with a Linux shell 
prompt.  What I want is a GUI console view--that is, what I would see if 
I were actually sitting at the server console.  How can I get this?
