And if you weren't already aware of this rather good tutorial
(oriented towards Debian and SISCWeb Scheme, using linode.com):


...you may find it useful as a model for writing your own[0].

Based on the recommendation of that article, I actually started using
linode.com for my own (more general-purpose) Linux virtual server.
Haven't regretted it yet (especially with the falling US dollar :)),
and I can pass on the recommendation.

[0] It may be worth mentioning that the catchy little title of the
above tutorial ("The Quick 'n Dirty Guide for Building, Programming
and Hosting Your Own Debian Linux, Tomcat and SISC Scheme Web Server
in 30 Minutes and for 30 Dollars Without a Headache") is a bit out of
date now - the low-end option at linode.com is now $20/month.
Testing can show the presense of bugs, but not their absence.
