I followed the install instruction to install backgroundrb from
http://backgroundrb.rubyforge.org/. But when running "git clone
git://github.com/gnufied/backgroundrb.git" command, I got the error of
no such command git.

That would appear to be the ruby interface to git. You need to have the
compiled git application installed as well. I'm not sure about where to
get git for windows, but i'm sure google will know.

Can I use vnc instead? I have checked out the code of backgroundrb by
vnc. How can I install it?

Do you mean svn? As far as I know, vnc is a remote desktop control tool,
not a source control tool.

If you used svn to checkout backgroundrb, then just follow the
instructions starting from "Configuration":

http://backgroundrb.rubyforge.org/
