If you don't create your own /home/username/.vnc/xstartup file,
vncserver will run twm which is a very old and unfriendly window
manager. You probably wan to run gnome instead. But, as I mentioned
before, this is going to run an independent screen. If instead, you
want to control the console session remotely, try
System/Preferences/Remote Desktop from the Gnome menu and allow remote
connections. This will be to the :0 (default) screen.
