I should have read the vncviewer man page first. I am going to force
Hextile encoding.  Hopefully that will speed things up. So from the

$vncviewer -encodings Hextile `hostname`:99

I will build this into the new TeacherTool I'm developing with FLTK
along with some other goodies.  I'm hoping to have it done by Sept.
BTW I'm using tightvnc viewer 1.2.9 RH7 rpm

Looking forward to using 4.2.1EL
