I have continued updating the redhat box to fix some minor problems.
The first problem was with Nautilus not appearing in VNC. I found that some people had already experienced the problem and recommended going to gnome2. Instead I updated gnome1 to the most current version. I get nautilus now but with some error messages about some windows.
The second problem was the lack of java support. So I downloaded the latest JRE.
The third problem was an old flashplayer. I updated to a new flashplayer and it crashes anytime it finds a page with flash on it. Wow! So I downloaded a newer Mozilla.
