[lvs-users] Virtual IP for LVS

I've read the Mini HOW TO and I'm trying to set up a LVS-TUN.
I don't exactly understand what should the Virtual IP be.

Should I buy an IP address to my ISP and assign this address as VIP?
Let say that VIP is associated to www.example.com. When a client types www.example.com in his browser, he will go directly to my VIP (provided by the ISP).
How does the system knows it has to redirect the request to the LVS Director?
Does the LVS Director IP has to be on the same subnet as the VIP?

Thanks for your help,
