Hi Clare,
Once you have a VM setup and accessible via ssh, you can also use our
scripts for automated configuration and deployment of dependencies and
tools. These scripts are used to setup Galaxy Cloud and they're targeted for
Ubuntu 10.04 but should be applicable to other distributions as well. The
scripts are available here:

Good luck,
Enis
