I'm not really sure about this, but I thought vino was
gnome-specific and krdb was kde-specific, where adding
the 'Load  "vnc" to the Modules section of your
/etc/X11/xorg.conf file works with any window manager as
long as X is running.  If you want sessions other than the
console, you can use vncserver for long-running sessions
that allow you to disconnect and reconnect or you can
configure xinetd to start new sessions on demand.
