Hi hope some one can help..

All I want to do is replicate the windows remote desktop login on my CentOS 5.2 box but as usual a simple thing becomes a nightmare. I have created a ssh tunnel to port 5900 using putty and vnc to give me access when a user is logged in but if no one is logged in i can't get connection.. I have enable remote login from preferences but is there not an easy way to get this working.? I'm figuring this should work without any mental hacks as it is a basic admin function..
