Installing Webmin on fresh Ubuntu 10.04 VPS

I prefer to install Webmin using the debian package, to be sure to get the latest version.  With many of the VPS's I've worked on, there were a few dependencies required before Webmin could be installed and often Ubuntu starts to act froggy with perl dependencies.  This is most often what I need to get started:

sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl apt-show-versions libapt-pkg-perl

Then I move on to wget the latest .deb download and  'dpkg --install xxx_filename.deb' it.
