How do I enable my vncserver to allow users to view the whole desktop and not just a terminal window? I setup vnc according to Bikerepairmann post above.
If I log into Fedora Core as root. And then I try to vnc in from a windows box, I get the whole desktop. Its a remote desktop and I can control the desktop from my windows box.
If I log into Fedore Core as sci_adm (user). And then I try to run vnc from a windows box, I only get a grey screen with a terminal console to type to. But I want the whole remote desktop here too.
Is there anything else I need to setup?
I first got the remote desktop for root to work by going to Desktop -> Preferences -> Remote Desktop and enabling the allow users to control your desktop. But if I log in as a regular user, it won't let me access these options.

edit /etc/sysconfig/vncserver file and modify as follows:
VNCSERVERS="1:PKS 2:JOHN 3:PETER"
where 1,2,3 are display controls for user " pks, john, peter" respectively.
set "vncpasswd" for each user and run "vncserver" for everybody to grant them Xauthority so that the can login remotely thru VNC
