Hmmm xinetd is a replacement for inetd which if you don¹t have /etc/xinetd I
would venture to guess you don¹t have it installed... Same with Xvnc... If
it isn't in /usr/bin, You need to install it....

The above statements belong in their own files (i.e. /etc/xinetd.d/vnc[ ,
-large, -huge] ) not in the xinetd.conf

The machine I am running this on is running YDL (yellow dog linux) which is
a RH derivitive so it is possible it is slightly different... Unfortunatly
my debian system isnt running right now so I cant check...
