Attaching to the console (-0) doesn't work. There's an issue at the
protocol level that, I think, requires an update to the rdesktop
program.  Time to see if they have a mailing list.

Turns out you can't install VNC server as a service on Vista -- it has
to be run at the user level.  I'll test that out when I get into the
office in an hour or so.
