So, me and a couple friends decided that we could mine in a private pool together.
Two Phenom ii X4, One X6's, One i5, and One i7.

I already own a ubuntu VPS and I have basic linux knowledge, can anyone give me an idea where to start? I understand PoolServerJ added Litecoin support, would it be best to try to use that? I just need pointed in the right direction.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

Although the latest version of PoolServerJ advertises experimental support for scrypt-based chains, as far as I know nobody has managed to get it to work fine yet.
At the moment I think you have two choices for the pool software: ArtForz's version of pushpool or p2k's ecoinpool.

I don't recommend pushpool because it is currently unmaintained.
I think ecoinpool is the way to go.

You might be able to create a private litecoin p2pool.  I think if everyone edits the litecoin BOOTSTRAP_ADDRS in p2pool/networks.py to only include your own nodes, it will work.  There could be more to it though.

Yeah actually I did, and I had ecoinpool working just fine. My friends slowly stopped mining so I eventually scrapped it to use the VPS for other things, but not before we mined a few blocks.
