    I did a little Woodage for the Helix-GNOME install.  I'm still mostly Potato.
Here's what I did:

1)  Change the stable to unstable lines to /etc/apt/sources.list and add "deb
http://spidermonkey.helixcode.com/distributions/debian unstable main" to it.
2)  apt-get update
3)  apt-get install task-helix-gnome
4)  Change the unstable lines in sources.list back to stable. (Except for the
helixcode entry.)
