I had this error some time ago on a Fedora server. I fixed it by
changing the vnc client being used on XP. There are several different
versions (tight, real, etc.).
You might want to try the xinetd vnc services instead. I use this every
day for some time now without error. You would have to log in though as
you would be presented with the KDM logon screen.
I set mine up by going to "Yast/Network Services/Network Services
(inetd)" and enabling "vnc10" and/or "vnc11". You can change the default
resolutions by editing "/etc/xinetd.d/vnc". If you also enable
"vnchttpd10" and/or "vnchttpd11" you will be able to use any web
browser, with java support, by browsing to "http://servername:5810"
Last, but not least, enable XDMCP by editing
"/etc/opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc" and run "rcxdm restart".
Hope This Helps
