You can follow link provided by x2oxen. You can also take a look into NoMachine NX if you want to use remote desktop other then VNC.

FYI, http://www.nomachine.com

Hello :) ,

Please follow these quick steps to configure and use VNC on your server
----------------
--> yum -y install vnc vnc-server

--> Edit /etc/sysconfig/vncservers

Add the following lines, like in the example bellow, following these criteria:
VNCSERVERS="id:username"
#where id is the display port of the X Server - put 5 for example.
VNCSERVERARGS[2]="-geometry <desired_resolution> -nolisten tcp -nohttpd -localhost"

-->Configuring X Window System

Type vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Search for section "Screen" - should be in the last part of the configuration file and add the lines

Option "SecurityTypes" "VncAuth"
Option "UserPasswdVerifier" "VncAuth"
Option "PasswordFile" "/userhomedirectory/.vnc/passwd"
Note that I used /root/.vnc/passwd because root is the username i configured. If you configure VNC for another account (specified in /etc/sysconfig/vncservers) tha path to the PasswordFile should be "/home/your_username/.vnc/passwd"
Save the file and close the editor.

--> chkconfig vncserver on

--> service vncserver start
----------------------
I hope this is done 8)
