1.  When you type in "vncserver :1" to start a session, are you in the
graphical environment, a terminal, or with gdm shut down?

2. What type of system are you starting VNC with?  Another Hoary or
Warty or what?

3.  What shows up in your ~/.vnc directory?  Have you checked the log?
 What does your xstartup file contain?
