GUI apps should work fine in a VNC session; that's the whole point.  Try 
to figure out why they aren't working.  Is it any GUI app that doesn't 
work?  All GUI apps?  What happens if you call the app through a 
terminal session running within VNC?  Can you SSH to the host, with 
ForwardX11 turned on (use a -X with the ssh command) and run GUI apps?
