All applications are installed with # apt-get install <package>

vlc : 1) su
2) apt-get install vlc

.. Or use the package manager 'synaptic'.

.....
And may be add this to /etc/apt/sources.list :
#DEBIAN MULTIMEDIA
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org/ lenny main

Some libraries are to be found in this repo only.
.....

#2 (indentation)
Use tab or space, it does not mater. Some editor like Kate have to indentation for bash.

#3 to export, use the "export" command. You can add it in your ~/.bashrc file to have it at boot. the path must look like:
/home/user/folder/file

APT HOWTO - http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/ap....html#contents
vlc is in the main debian repo. But you may want the debian-multimedia.org repo for other apps. My suggestion would be for you to get to know how to use Synaptic then aptitude.

A decent /etc/apt/sources.list that will give you most anything you will need would be something like:
Code:
#Stable
#deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
#Stable Sources
#deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
#Security Updates Stable
#deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib non-free

# Debian Volatile http://www.debian.org/volatile/
# deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib non-free
# deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile-sloppy main contrib non-free

# Debian Stable Backports
# http://www.backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=instructions
# apt-get install debian-backports-keyring
#deb http://www.backports.org/debian lenny-backports main contrib non-free

#Debian-multimedia.org apt-get install debian-multimedia-keyring
# deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org lenny  main
