I'm not subcribed to this list yet (trying... trying...), but I noticed

You can also do the same thing using the Xnest X server, which is basically
an X server in an X-window. In RedHat land, this is provided by the 
XFree86-Xnest package. 

Simply doing a 'Xnest :1' will start up a nested X server on display 1. You'll
have to manually redirect application windows there (via export DISPLAY=:1 or
something), but this is probably a little more efficient than using VNC.
