What next?


Just finished loading Virtualbox on computer, installed centos. Now what? Try'n to learn how to set-up a home based server, e-mail server all in one. I'm totally confused on where to begin this learning curve.

I would recommend to first learn the basic commands before going any further, so that following a tutorial is not only blind copy&paste, but you are actually understanding what you are doing.
Have a look here for that:
http://linuxcommand.org/index.php
http://linux.2038bug.com/rute-home.html

After you have done that, just pick a tutorial from the net for what you want to achieve, for example:
