Another silly question: where do I put x0vncserver so it will start up when a user logs into KDE and/or gnome and die when they log out?

Interesting,  I don't know VNC very well I guess.  The help section of x0vncserver (x0vncserver -h) says 5998 is the default.  I tried that, I did not realize I needed to add a double colon (hostname::port).  I was using a single colon.  Completely my fault.

Port 5998 is non-standard for VNC.  You would have to specify the port
rather than a display number.  For example:

vncviewer hostname::5998

Do you have a firewall enabled?  Have you looked at the vnc log file to
verify it started?  Can you telnet to port 5901?
