how to re-install debian on vps from VNC?

I got vps and I don't like their debian installation, I think I should be able to login with vnc and start rescue mode and install debian minimal, but I cannot remember commands and google gives me wrong results.

here is screenshot:

I want to make my own installation of debian minimal at vps. I tried rescue but re-installation was done automatically. any advice?

answer: I asked hosting and they told me to login with installer and password instead of root and password.
I don't know if they had to prepare something, some script, but that's how it worked.
just during manual installation I had problem with (mirror server) and in the end I did automatic installation.
beside it vnc was better than ssh, ssh (firessh) blocked session while ultravnc didn't block during manual installation, but because of bad mirror, I did in the end automatic install.
