Question Installation questions with ISPconfig using ubuntu dapper drake

I am new to Linux and somewhat webservers i appreciate the tutorial.
During the installation of ispconfig it would fail at this point.

Please enter the host name: E.g. www
Please enter the domain: E.g. server1.mydomain.com
Url unreachable...

Scary thing is I got past this point around 3:00 in the morning and the system finished the install (I think). I still think i put in server1.mydomain.com and setup https://. But get failures read below.

Now if I type in https://www.server1.mydomain.com:81 or https://server1.mydomain.com:81 it doesn't work it just keeps trying to connect.

If i type in https://externalIpAddress.com:81 it brings up the admin login and once i login it displays this message and kicks me out.
Not Found
The requested URL /nojsindx.htm was not found on this server.

Apache/1.3.36 Server at www.server1.mydomain.com Port 81

I am using godaddy to forward my domains to my routers ip address. I am using their dns name servers.
If I type in www.mydomain.com it brings me to my www directory on the server. However if I type www.server1.mydomain.com it sends me to a parking page on godaddy.com I think this may be the problem. I tried then to create a subdomain on godaddy.com called server1 and forwarded it to www.mydomain.com I am not sure I did this part correctly but it didn't work. If someone has done this before please let me know how you did it step by step.

Here is some information outputs.
/etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost
192.168.1.200 server1.mydomain.com server1

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

dig
; <<>> DiG 9.3.2 <<>> www.server1.mydomain.com

root@server1:~# hostname
server1
root@server1:~# hostname -f
server1.mydomain.com

So these are my main questions.
1. How do I patch or reinstall/continue install ISPconfig (including deleting the all previous installation files thru command prompt and root)
2. Forward subdomain on go daddy or do dns stuff with makes my head hurt.
3. Should I use a different distro like fedora 5.

I have been reading the howtos regarding DNS and domains and it still confuses me. I am trying to set up a webserver to host some small websites (joomla) to learn before I go to my server classes this fall.

Thanks again for this wonder site and this open source software.
