Hello; I / we are in the process of transferring funds to our existing paid hosting account so we can pay for a VPS. We are going to opt in for the lowest price entry package first to get used to the service and try out our options. We are planning on running a; Shoutcast server Ventrilo / Teamspeak server and possibly a flash server, all to enable us to communicate and produce / broadcast Internet radio style streaming. I will be the administrator for the account on the VPS. I have absolutely ZERO experience with linux or VPS and am seeking help. Please can somebody let me know which, in your opinion will be the best OS to install and and also a 'beginners' user guide for assistance with installing the above mentioned and indeed other softwares. I have installed centOS 5 on 'Sun xVM VirtualBox' and in all honesty I cannot figure out where to start, completely alien to me considering the lack of .exe or .msi files. I want to be able to install a recommended OS on 'VirtualBox' so I can 'play' and 'learn' before letting loose on the x10 VPS. I thank you in advance for any support and guidance I may get in reply from this request for help. Respectfully, Matthew Green aka MattG - britishnproud http://4allofus.com p.s our operation is 100% not-for-profit and charitable, please help!
