I believe the "-f" is optional.  If it's not specified, xm assumes that
your last argument is a config file.

No.  It's in SUSE, but it's called LibVNCServer.  (I don't know why it
has FunkyCaps.)

If you're using the Xen from the SLES 10 betas, VNC and SDL support are
already compiled in.

One trick you may want to try (especially if using SDL):  Boot your
machine, start X, and then (from within X) restart xend
("/etc/init.d/xend restart").  Then try to start the VMX guest.

Hope that helps,
