Looking for some help via VNC


I don't typically do this, but I'd like to invite someone to help me go through setting up the rest of my linux box via VNC, so I could watch what they did. As people who have seen my other posts know, I'm completely clueless.

So, I'd be watching what you did while you did it. Currently on my to-do list are:

Install video card drivers
Install chipset drivers (Both nVidia.)
Install wine

I'm running the x86_64 version of linux, but am completely lost.

Also, is this course any good? http://www.skillcircle.com/linux.html

Okay, leaving this page up. Tomorrow I'll list what I've done so far, I have a feeling I junked up the system.

Thank you very much, which VNC program do you prefer?

Okay, this is what I've done so far.

1.Use netinst CD to install base OS
2.Got into KDE
3.Gotten a variety of packages (Almost at random)
4.Attempted to install nVidia drivers (Both nforce3 250 and 6800GT)
5.Attempted to install kernel source/kernel headers (Neither worked, like the drivers.)
6.Attempted to install nVidia drivers (Both once more, failure again.)
7.Attempted to install wine (Failure, won't install.)
8.Asked for help.

Tell me when you're ready to set it up, try to IM me though, I'm faster on the reply there.
