	Need some pointers here. I've got CentOS 4.4, and I want to control my 
OSX 10.4.9 box via VNC. It connects, and I get a little dot for the 
mouse cursor, but just a black screen. I can see the mouse controlling 
the OSX desktop...
	Here's the output when I start in a terminal:

[d at f ~]$ vncviewer
