I don't believe that the vncserver option works with the root id with the 
service. You can login as root with ssh, and start it with no problem, but not 
the vncservers start. I just use another id, and then once connected just use 
su -, or get prompted for the root password. I believe it is because the root 
users directory isn't under home, but it could be something else.
