Just a PSA:

I wanted to remote into my frontend, which is running with only my
Sharp LCD as a display, using VNC. I'm using all binaries from Ubuntu
Edgy, FYI.

Install the 'vnc4server' package, and make the following changes to xorg.conf:

In the "Module" section, add:
        Load    "vnc"

In your "Screen" section add:
        Option          "SecurityTypes" "VncAuth"
        Option          "UserPasswdVerifier" "VncAuth"
        Option          "PasswordFile" "/root/.vnc/passwd"

As root, run "vncpasswd" to create the password file.
Restart gdm and you are all set.
