Thanks for starting this project -- this is really huge stuff, and it can only get better! Tried this first on a Ubuntu 6.10 installatoin, but like some other users reported, the Xvnc connection on Ubuntu was a bit too shaky.
Figured that everyone's plain Jane vanilla Fedora would run this just fine, therefore, and sure enough it does!
Here are some notes that I took for anyone else who may have issues in the future, about as detailed as I can make it.
I installed Fedora Core 6 (i386) straight on through, and at the software selection point I picked "Office and Productivity" and "Software Development". As it went on through the install, I disabled the firewall (just to test it) and I set the SELinux to "permissive" (again, just to test it). The install proceeded just as normal, and it shuffled me off to the gnome desktop.
Downloaded the xrdp source, un-tar'ed it, and, just as the installation instructions said, to a folder underneath my home directory. Going to Applicaitons-->Accessories-->Terminal, it opened up a command prompt.
Because I was using gnome, it required a quick change to the startwm.sh file. Again, opening up a terminal:
I commented (using # at the start of the line, naturally) anything related to the KDE install. I also uncommented (deleting the # at the start of the line) the 4 lines underneath #gnome to allow all of the gnome-specific information to be accessed.
Then, to get out of nano, Ctrl+X, and Yes to save.
To get XRDP started, then, while still at that command prompt:
Hope this is helpful information from someone -- and thanks so much for this project!!!
