I spent some time today on this and I can't quite getting to work. I'm 
working on a RHEL system which does not have xdm installed, but gdm 
instead. Anyway, I've configured xinetd to startup Xvnc but I get a 
blank screen. Bascially when Xvnc starts up, what really should happen 
is gdm should start in conjunction with Xvnc so that when the vncviewer 
windows opens, I have the gdm log in window up and running.

Any ideas of how I should configure the Xvnc service file read by 
xinetd? Currently I have this...

[root at basement00 init.d]# more /etc/xinetd.d/xvncserver
service vnc-1024x768x24
     protocol = tcp
     socket_type = stream
     wait = no
     user = nobody
     server = /usr/bin/Xvnc
     server_args = -inetd -query localhost -once securitytypes=none 
-geometry 1024x768 -depth 24

I feel like server = /usr/bin/Xvnc needs to be replaced by a script 
which in turns calls Xvnc and gdm....

Cheers Steve.
