Don't forget that VNC sends ALL data in the clear. This can be bad, as any passwords you enter, or any other sensitive information can be sniffed from the network. See http://www.realvnc.com/faq.html#security for some tips. Of course, since you already know how to use SSH, you should learn how to do tunneling, in order to encrypt ANY traffic, including VNC.

    so that we can all learn to tunnel --
    Pick it up, right from here. and, in
    the same style and 'weight'.
