Hi, guys.

i use vpsville almost 1 year, VERY good but having problem with new system.. i used to order these vps to get certain ip so i can monitor my google adwords displays in certain countries, i often order Debian 4.0 Minimal, then i install firfox with following commend, forgive me i have no skills with linux commend except below i searched online and it worked for while then suddenly it's not working any more:

apt-get update
aptitude install gdm xorg xterm icewm menu
apt-get install vnc4server
aptitude install mozilla-firefox
vnc4server -display 1280x1024 (note: will need a password for vnc access)

then i connect the server with VNC viewer, but now when i install on second commend aptitude install gdm xorg xterm icewm menu, i'm getting error:

I suggest you try Debian 5, its the latest version.

Also, you can use our gnome desktop template instead, instruction for use are here:

Alternately you can setup a simple VPN, and then browse from your own machine using your servers connection and IP address.
