Remote VNC on computer bootup (Lucid)

Sorry for the top-posting, never heard of that (from previous e-mail).

So I created another user which ask a password when logging in. This time,
VNC session got accepted after I logged in.

If I setup a user to login automatically, then the keyring comes up. That's
the problem I have.

This all make sense but I can't achieve the goal of being able to login to
VNC desktop once the machine restarted and until I logged in with the user.
But then I can start a VNC session on :1 and use it until I get home.

Not sure if there is a way to get the keyring to automatically accept the
VNC session.
