has anyone managed to get the vnc option working in Teacher Tool, and if so 
would they be willing to share how they did this?  I am of the opinion that 
there is a fundamental flaw with the command that TT runs; said command is 
vncviewer -passwd /usr/local/share/passwd server:99 
We are expecting the server to be called "server" and the vncserver to be 
running on port 99 of the server.  Thin clients don't acutally run a 
vncserver, so I can see how it is possible to connect to a logged in thin 
client.  This is obviously a desirable thing to do as we want the teachers to 
be able to see what the students are up to and, if necessary, do something on 
the students screen, all from the comfort of the teachers desk.
