Help picking web page applications please !

I'm asking for advice on which web applications you would recommend to a person wanting to start their own web-page. I am new to web-page design and want to get up and running on a simple web-page relatively quickly and easily. I'm not afraid of trying to create some of my own design as I know a little HTML and the bare basics of web design - CSS etc -- it's just I haven't used it in real life yet. My e-mail provider (runbox) provides free web-site hosting and I needed to buy a domain name which I did. I want to start my own web page for personal use on items such as pictures, surveys or polls, blogs, discussions etc. My domain provider uses the following applications and I'm asking for advice on which applications a new user, relatively green on the tech side, should use. See below for the list of supplied web applications (if that is what you call them). [more inside]

Setting up a dedicated web server

A dedicated Fedora Plesk server has been set up for me at a hosting company, and as a site admin I'm not sure what to do next. Is there a good guide or tutorial anywhere that will get me up to speed on preparing a dedicated server for a website that uses PHP and mysql? Will I have to install Apache? Are those programs normally installed by default with run-of-the-mill dedicated hosting? This company's documentation is scarce and I think I'm in over my head.

Looking for a good, free, online image hosting service

Can anyone suggest a good, free, online image hosting service? PhotoIsland is gone, PhotoBucket is shit and freely goes into my files and deletes images (like nude photographs of my girlfriend that did not show any nipple or genitalia and a cartoon I drew of us screwing -a cartoon!-) and their server is either really slow or just 'locks' half the time, so loading images for a post on my blog is a huge chore. I'm looking for a fast, realiable service that will not censor my PG-13 content. I understand that these are free services and I shouldn't bitch, but they need to understand that they wouldn't have advertisers without users like me. HELP!
