I recently looked into this and came upon: http://xf4vnc.sourceforge.net/ Have not tried xf4vnc out yet, but will this week. The latest beta version (126.96.36.199) seems the most promising. This attaches VNC to your "0" display through an XFree module so behavior is similar to the way VNC works on a windows system. Many potential uses, including remote support for Mum on her FreeBSD/Gnome2 desktop :-) Anyone else out there using the beta and have any comments?
