..you could do this the same way X is started, check in /etc/init.d/ .
..but, I don't understand why you prefer vnc over X? Or Xnest?
If security is an issue like on internet, wrap it in a ssh pipe, works
for vnc too, and X sessions usually use port 6000-n-up, and I believe
this is useable even from M$IE, or is there a full M$ boycott on X?
..note that X is deaf in Debian, Knoppix etc, this is set with the
"nolisten" option, you _may_ wanna comment out those, if you
do, watch out on your firewalling. ;-)

Scenarios always come in sets of three:
best case, worst case, and just in case.
