Yes, there are at least 2 other ways you can set up vnc access
beside the typical vncserver method.  One is to allow access
to the console session (:0) by adding
   Load  "vnc"
to the Module section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf and 
  Option "passwordFile" "/root/.vnc/passwd
in the Screen section.  Use vncpasswd to set the password
as for vncserver.

Another is to let xinetd start Xvnc on demand so every
connection gets a fresh login.
