This is solid advice, but I think John's issue is with his VNC
connection. He's been saying that's on port 5900, which is outside the
superuser range (1-1023 for those keeping score at home).
I'd recommend trying to telnet to the VNC server while the image is
running. If you get a bunch of text with the letters rfb in it, then you
know it's working.
