Can be anything you can run a VNC server on. TightVNC is good enough. Check out their website for the requirements.

@reboot: For gnome, go to System -> Preferences -> Remote Desktop. VNC is installed with the default GNOME installation, but not enabled. Check the top two boxes and the bottom two if desired. VNC is a platform-independent protocol... life saver for Linux :D I would not recommend using this client on the iPhone, though. VNsea in the Network category works just as well - I beleive it\'s the same package, and it doesn\'t require extra sources.
