I believe so. The ubuntu desktop version... not sure about server version.

Edit: I think I'm going to switch from Debian to Ubuntu. Ubuntu comes with a gui and NX correct?

You can get the debian net install disk which is similar to what OVH use. OVH use modified versions.

As suggested Ubuntu might be the best option for you.

Would Ubuntu desktop be OK for you, I believe it comes with NX preconfigured and its debian based?

This isn't a control panel for the server remember. Only a GUI like the ubuntu desktop.

Thanks for the quick reply Jonathan.

I think I can find out how to install VNC with a quick google search

Edit: Do you know where I can get the same Debian file that they use to install on the servers? The one on the Debian website seems rather large.

You can install as simple as:

apt-get install xorg gnome-core gdm
