Bug Remote login with VNC

Hi Everyone,

Well I am not sure if this right forum. I have install Redhat 5 enterprise. I have everything running. I have configured vncserver. Starts with out errors. I am trying to connect for a XP machine to my RedHat server. I can connect from my XP machine through VNC viewer but I get only a xterm. I would like to get the gui. Any tips?

You may need to change your $HOME/.vnc/xstartup file.
Chage there the default, twm most probably, into the WM you want to use.
