If you have a terminal then you could type startx or startkde (i don't
know what gnome startup is).
How I setup vnc for me is as follows (for kde setup and root access)...
Login as root
type vncserver and put in the password twice
edit services and turn on vncserver at startup
rem out as follows
startkde & (if you put startx then it will autologin as root on the console)
edit inittab and set to runlevel 5
make the last lines as follows...
(1024x768 did not seem to work)
disable any firewall or firewall rules that block vnc
Hope something here helps.

I have VNC server running on a remote machine and I have it set up so
that when I access it with either vnc viewer or HTML port 5800 (java
app) I get my normal graphical desktop.
However, if I stupidly action the Logout from the desktop (not just
closing the vnc viewer or HTML session), then I don't have the ability
to log back in and all I get is a black screen, and the only way I can
overcome it is to restart the vnc server on the remote machine.
What am I missing? Should I be running xdm, gdm or kdm, and if so
