I've chosen to let the Ubuntu installer do the partitioning, and by default it creates a / and a swap partition. Of course you can choose any other partitioning scheme, as Till did in the Ubuntu 5.10 tutorial. For the tutorial it's not really important.

I highly recommend to create a root account. Of course, you can use sudo, but I don't like that. I wouldn't delete admin - admin is not a second root account, it's a normal user account.

I've never tried without the network and broadcast addresses. Just leave them in there.

Many programs refer to localhost.localdomain instead of just localhost, that's why I added it there.

If you created a /var partition, then you can add that to /var. But in my guide I don't have a /var partition, that's why I add it to /.

On my setup there are two commas before localhost as in

server1.example.com, localhost.example.com, , localhost

Was something removed there by the OS? Is it meant to be there? For my install I removed the additional comma.
I also had this additional comma, it's a bug. I removed it, and you should, too.

However this one does

I'll correct that...

AWStats doesn't integrate into ISPConfig. If webalizer is quite old, this can also mean it's so good it doesn't need to be updated...
