More Linux

Today I finished loading up my new linux box with updates. Then I started adding a couple of applications to make my life easier. I installed apt and Synaptic to make upgrading easier. I used Synaptic to install Mysql. I could not find a Webmim in the rpm's so I downloaded from the website and installed it. I am still working on a bug with ssh connections. I can make outbound connections but not inbound connections. I think I have it narrowed down to a problem in the hosts_allow file. I really want to use VNC to the box.
