    since vnc is only good for X, best is probably to add a line contating the command to start the server to ~/.xinitrc

    Is there a better "Remote Desktop" program?

    Where is this?
    ~/.xinitrc

    Sorry forgot to mention that I have been using linux for a week now.

    ~/ commonly refers you the users home directory.

    FYI... Starting VNC on startup is a really bad idea, as it poses a huge security threat. It's best to login via ssh, startup the vnc server, connect, do what you gotta to, then close the vnc server and exit ssh.
