Okay, do the following:

1) Yast2->network Services->Network Services (Inetd)
There enable vnc1, vnc2, and vnc3
(For client access diferent screen sizes)

enable vnchttpd1, 2, and 3
(For Browser Access in deferent screen sizes)

2) yast2->system->/etc/sysconfig editor->Desktop->Display Manager->
Displaymanager_Remote_Access = Yes
Displaymanager_Root_Login_Remote = yes (To allows root user to login)
Displaymanager_Starts_XServer = no (To turn off X_Windows on console)
Displaymanager_XSERVER_TCP_PORT_6000_OPEN = No
(this is default, the parameter is for something totally different)
KDM_SHUTDOWN = root (Only root can shut machine down!)
Displaymanager_Autologin = (leave blank no one gets logged in automatically!)
Displaymanager_Password_Less_Login = no (ditto)

Exit Yast,

In console (<ctrl><alt><F1>) as root do
$ init 3
$ init 5

Try vnc again...

Note for firewall:

the ports you are using are:
Vnc client
Display 1 (1024x768) -> 5901
Display 2 (1280x1024)-> 5902
Display 3 (1600x1024)-> 5903
Http Downloader
Display 1 (1024x768) -> 5801 (to download java, then 5901 for java client)
Display 2 (1280x1024)-> 5802 (to download java, then 5902 for java client)
Display 3 (1600x1024)-> 5803 (to download java, then 5903 for java client)


P.S. In the file /etc/xinetd.d/vnc you add the parameter
-desktop Your_Companyname_Without_Blanks
-desktop Your_Servername_Without_Blanks

This will be included in the tittle bar on the client...

P.P.S I usually modify the windows sizes slightly so that the window + frame
on the client fits on my clients screen...
