Anyone has a script for enabling and putting password on VNC under Remote management?

Looking at the kickstart help you should be able to do the following:

sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart -activate -configure -access -on -restart -agent -privs -all -clientopts -setvncpw XXXXXXXX

Although that gives anyone with that password access...you might want to fine tune it to admins only.
