That's it!  :-)

OH!  to invoke it on the command line go to

gdmsetup   (you'll need to be on the server or a thin-client....or VNC'd
into the server)
 
 
VNC is really neat, it uses a "virtual framebuffer".  This means that you can run vncserver on your machine even if the video card itself doesn't work correctly, the only thing that it requires is that you have a nicely formed Xorg config file.  In case your video/monitor blows out, it is a nice way to be able to run your GUI scripts and programs until you can get a replacement.
