Using VNC on OpenSuSE 11.2

http://forums.opensuse.org – I see that remote desktop is no longer used on OpenSUSE 11.2. So I am trying to use VNC. I have tightvnc on a windows machine as well. 1) When I first tried using the VNC viewer on windows it came up with "nobody's X11 desktop..." Why did I get "Nobody's"? Is there a way to get a particular user's desktop? 2) I specified a different port (:2) and got the user that I want. It came up with a terminal window. In doing so I ended up with a blank desktop - no icons on it. Is that normal? 3) Is there a way to see the desktop of an active user on the Linux system? More questions, but later... I've been reading all I can about VNC/OpenSuSE 11.2 but none answer the questions. (Distributions)
