in the homedir of the user whom you are running vnc as, there's a .vnc directory and a file called startup (at least on Red Hat it is called so). In this file you can determine, which windowmanager should start.

Here's my xstartup (it's a Red Hat ES 3.0 but should be similar on Fedora) that starts the default gnome-session:

---
#!/bin/sh

# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
unset SESSION_MANAGER
exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
twm &
---
