    My 2nd newbish question is, do I have to access the xserver through VNC to get a GUI, or am i totally wrong/lost?

    Thanks for helping me!

    Sorry, I missed the first question. What was it again?
    Anyway, VNC will be the simplest way to get a GUI remotely. You just have to be sure the Debian box is running a VNC server.
