Okay now.  So far, I've managed to finally get a non-root KDE desktop set 
to 800x600 - 32 Bit depth.  I did indeed have to log in as a normal user 
and then start the vncserver with

vncserver geometry 800x600 depth 32

So I am making some headway on this project.  Now, here is what I am 
ultimately shooting for.

1:  Have vncserver load automatically at boot time with the above 
parameters.  (800x600 is plenty suitable for my needs here) I do not want 
to have to ssh in to the system first to start the server

2:  When I run my vnc client to access the vnc server, be presented with 
the greeter, so that I can log in as any user and select any installed 
window manager (GNOME, KDE, or Enlightenment)

3:  When I close out my window manager, I want to be taken back to the 
greeter, so that I can either log in as another user, or shut down the 

4:  And while I am at it, I want to be able to have sound capabilities 
for non-root users.  Right now, only root can have sound.

Also, where is the .vnc directory located?  I can't seem to locate it, 
even though I'm pretty sure it is there somewhere.
