VNCServer - Starting up on boot

Alright here is some background.  We have 2 dell poweredge servers running RedHat ES3 on them, and they will be running Oracle software.  They will be put in a different building as soon as I figure this out.

I have vncserver running correctly on the 2 servers, and we can access them just fine.  The problem is that when we reboot the server you can not access VNCserver until you log into the server.  This means that you physically have to be at the server.

How can we get VNCserver to start up for 2 users when the computer starts up?  or what kind of workaround is there for this type of problem?

I added this line to the vncserver file

VNCSERVERS="1:oracle"

And when I run "/etc/init.d/vncserver start" it starts up the vncserver session correctly.  Then I added the following line to 'usr/share/doc/pam_krb5-1.73/pam.d/linuxconf' , 'usr/share/doc/pam_krb5-1.73/krb5afs-pam.d/linuxconf', and 'usr/share/doc/nss_ldap-207/pam.d/linuxconf'

account        required     /etc/init.d/vncserver start

It does not start up when the server starts.  What am I doing wrong?

/etc/rc.d/rd.3 folder (may not be right it been a while)
