Thanks but what I really want is to have Gnome 3 running on my Fedora 
15 MBE and access the GUI using TightVNC on my Windows 7 laptop. I 
really do now want to run X and Gnome 3 on the laptop if I can avoid 
it as I need to keep the overhead on the laptop to a minimum.

My issue is how to get Gnome (and X) to boot without an attached 
monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I had it running on Fedora 13, but when 
I upgraded to Fedora 15 that /etc/X11/xorg.conf stopped working. I 
printed out my most recent /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/logXorg.0.log 
files in a previous post.

Any ideas?
