    I was following this guide:
    http://www.cpanel.net/docs/whm/

    First I booted the machine and did these commands:
    apt-get update
    apt-get install xserver-xfree86
    apt-get install xfonts-base
    apt-get install xfonts-75dpi kdebase konsole

    Everything was rebooted and then I preceded with the directions. I am using a standard debian.1gb, so im not sure if I would have to increase that in order to meet their recommendations for storage capitity.

    Anyways so when I first try to install it starts up and then says this:

    ********************* ERROR *********************

    Your hostname is not set properly. Please
    change your hostname to a fully qualified domain name,
    and re-run this installer.

    *******************************************************
    If you wish to change it press Ctrl+C NOW!!!
    Otherwise, you must change it once the install is complet
    And then run /scripts/upcp --force
    *******************************************************

    At this point I figured well they give you an option to change when install is complete so I'll just do that. The thing says it will begin installing, will take 10-70 minutes based on system. Im running a athlon XP 1800+ with 3mb/s cable, so i figured 40 minutes tops. Within the first minute get one error saying:
    cp: cannot create regular file `/etc/rc.d/init.d/functions': No such file or directory
    it continues on installing. By installing im assuming the constant dots means its installing. Next it starts saying numbers 1.x1..2.x2..3.4..5. then reads some packages and does numbers every so often, continuing with dots also. 80 minutes later I come back and nothing but dots and more dots. I figured something went wrong so i Ctrl-C'ed it.

    I thought maybe it was the hostname thing So i googled how some commands and decided to use the command:
    hostname allure.homelinux.com
    (allure.homelinux is a redirected DNS service pointing to my IP. Not sure if thats a valid hostname for them)

    I try the install again and the hostname error went away, but the cp error came up. I waiting around 30 minutes or so before I finally cancelled again when i had nothing but dots, I checked the logs and the final lines of one of the logs said:

    sh Configure -ds -e -Dprefix=/usr -Dotherlibdirs=/usr/share/perl5
    First let's make sure your kit is complete. Checking...
    Would you like to see the instructions? [n]
    Locating common programs...
    I can't find make or gmake, and my life depends on it.
    Go find a public domain implementation or fix your PATH setting!

    ------------------------------------------------
    From this point on I am stump on what the problem is, Do I need to use a real domain that I bought, can i use my IP as a domain. Do I need to setup my image to be bigger. The whole dot thing with the installer confused as if it was installing or waiting for input.

    If anyone has idea, suggestions for me that would be great. This is my 2nd day on linux so you might have to speak in detail as how to solve some thing.

    you need to wait until it finishes the install

    to view whats going on tail the install log it gives you when you run the comand sh latest

    the dots & such are meaningles
