02-10092361 is the ... hostname?

If you use "vnc" in the console, the script try to use the svgalib
client svncviewer. You have to setup svgalib for your video card.

But if you shutdown the vnc server and start XWindows, you have che
chance to use the vncviewer for X. In this cas the "vnc" script,
automatically will use it.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
