Hi all

Yesterday I decided that i wanted a home server. I have 3 hosted with a data center but wanted to build my own. There are so many website saying this and that most with people commenting on that it did not work.

Well i built a home one, cost £50, took me all day and night but its up and running on a dynamic ip. This was just to test i am moving to a static ip shortly.

I do have a few questions though if somebody could please help me.

Currently i have the server IP set a local lan ip when i get static ip's i will have 5 of them all which point to my router. when setting up centos and giving the ip insted of giving the local lan ip would i give it one of the real static ip's?

And next question

on one of my data center servers whm panel shows my disk usage as this

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda3 48G 7.7G 38G 18% /
/dev/vda1 487M 17M 445M 4% /boot
tmpfs 502M 0 502M 0% /dev/shm
/usr/tmpDSK 485M 12M 448M 3% /tmp

The above is a 50gb vps server

The server i created yesterday shows mine as

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/vg_server10-lv_root 50G 4.9G 42G 11% /
tmpfs 467M 0 467M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1 485M 54M 406M 12% /boot
/dev/mapper/vg_server10-lv_home 59G 651M 55G 2% /home
/usr/tmpDSK 485M 11M 449M 3% /tmp

when installing centos please could somebody explain in very simple (Expect i know nothing) how do I create and name partitions so that my server at home create disk info like my data center server.

Thank you
