Default GPG keygen: Not enough random bytes available

i try to install the article: http://www.howtoforge.com/creating-e...ebian-lenny-p2 and in step when the key will be generated the result is:

Not enough random bytes available. Please do some other work to give
the OS a chance to collect more entropy! (Need 282 more bytes).

Please help me to solve this.

Take a look here:

You could open a second terminal and compile something (./configure && make, you don't need to install it) to gain enough entropy.
