I have bought Dell Optiplex 760 and i would like to in stall Virtual Private Server (VPS) on it.. can anybody please tell me step by step tutorial to install VPS in my computer and have my own webserver?
well.. i have windows 2003 Enterprise Edition installed on my box.. so from which source i can install Cpanel and WHM in my box? please some more details on it
Follow the linux's i've posted in my reply above this one. Download VMware server and install it and then download one of the Linux images and apply it in Vmware Server. Then you just SSH into the Linux server (Virtual Server that you've made) and install CPanel in there.
Once you do that, you've made your very first Cpanel hosted VM server.
i am downloading them and will install.. and i will let you guys know about it
I am downloading VMware Server 2 with CentOS 5.3. is it good for my dell system??? and is it call VPS server after i install them?
now i am trying to install the cpanel but it give me the following error: resolving layer1.cpanel.net... failed: Name or service not known

He installed his own vps, how do you know /etc/resolv.conf have any entries in it or not ? The error clearly indicates he does not have proper settings, so he is not going to be able to "install" cpanel before he fixes that.
What do you mean by -- "Doesn't make a difference"
oh ok.. but can you tell me how to put my local ips ( my local ips are ) (192.168.1.XXX)
because i want to host locally in my network.
OK, you want to host it on your local network, that is hosted on your server? As long as your IP's are routed correctly, you should be able to use your local network as well. But as it was mentioned, the Ips you were given were just the known resolving IPs that your host uses.
