Hi all,

Just an addition to my summary before.

Thanks to Mr. Thomas, I have found a better way of running the desktop using
VNC.  Use /usr/dt/bin/Xsession& instead of /usr/dt/bin/dtwm & for better
results cause it launches a full session and uses your set preferences.

You had it close.  However, this is what launches a full session and uses
preferences.  The other method may work, but this is the cleanest I've found

under vnc.
