comment Upgrading VirtualBox using a `.deb`
AFAIR 'vanilla' virtualbox.org packages are created in such a way, that virtualbox-X.N and virtualbox-X.M are unrelated (but conflicting), so you will have to remove *-4.2 first.

Mount your system drive and chroot to it.

comment Does the rc.local script start automatically?
You can just fire up rcconf and mark ssh for automatic startup. There is no need for rc.local, but just in case this script must end with exit 0 line to work correctly.

comment Mate as default desktop manager in debian?
Yes, meatcity is Gnome's wm; you could try to add mate manually, but in general it looks like not configured/broken install.

comment Mate as default desktop manager in debian?
Does Mate provide display manager actually? Anyway, it's better to use alternatives system than hand-editting files like that. To select mate as default window manager you'd execute update-alternatives --config x-window-manager. Then you can just startx (as user).

comment Maximum disk size for a Debian 6 VMware installation?
wow, it is too huge; on my home box (i have a lot of dev packages installed, including compilers/cross-compilers/ides/etc) the 'system' part (everything except /home) occupies ~4.5GB (taking into account that kernel and mesa compiled sources alone take >750MB). Concerning size optimizations i only use localepurge and don't install recommended packages by default.

@MohamedAbobakr: and if you want to shave-off several hundred MB more without much effort, you can install packages.debian.org/search?keywords=localepurge (this package will purge unused translations automatically).
