# First get your tools together

# Now install node and npm
cd /usr/local/src

tar xvfz nodejs

I'd suggest the following changes:

use /usr/local/src instead of /usr/src

add 'make' to your list of installables.

Made those changes, thanks! Sorry for the late response.

#For RackSpace - Debian Just add

apt-get install python-setuptools

And Works Well.
