can you help me out mcduck. I havnt setup a .xinitrc file.

my setup is as follows.

I have a microserver, ubuntu server on it. I have installed gnome just because i am still learning. what i wanna be able to do is remote desktop onto the server just when i cant do something through the terminal.

so my question is :- is it possible to have gnome startup when i remote desktop onto the server ? then when im not remote desktoping it quits ? is this even possible or am i jus dreaming things up ?

sorry if this sounds stupid, im new to ubuntu !!
