aww yeah I know...
it was just a help to someone who wanted some pointers...
however it's a test system I'm playing with, without internet access and
it's just easier to work in root to get it setup right, and then stick
it on the internet, rather than the tiresome logging in as a user and
doing su etc.
Still, I'm no pro, and you're right, so apologies.

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)...
So, you run a VNC server as root, listening on the interweb?
VNC being the unsecure protocol it is (cleartext) - isn't this just a
little silly (besides the obvious running things as root context)?
