The "war" between he jin and the ten attendants was basically a political war -- although it still ended with lots of deaths. The eunuchs didn't have any land to call their own (aside from their homes), and most of the action was in Luoyang, especially in the palace and other government buildings.
https://digitalcollections.anu.edu.au/bitstream/1885/42048/20/map02.pdf is a map of where the major warlords (and zhang lu) were. For reference:
* Gongsun Zan seized the western half of You; Gongsun Du (and his descendants) had the eastern half on orders form Dong Zhuo. To my knowledge, they weren't related.
* Yuan Shu had Yu and the northwestern part of Yang (basically the parts beyond the river). He gained limited control over a decent part of the rest of Yang (via Sun Ce), but when he declared himself emperor, Sun Ce immediately cut ties, and Yuan Shu lost the rest of his land within a couple years.
* Yuan Shao started with Bohai in eastern Ji; he gradually increased his territory until he had all of Ji, Qing, and Bing, and the western half of You.
* Lu Bu seized Changan and held it for little over a month; later he helped Zhang Miao take most of Yan, but Cao Cao recovered it and Lu Bu was forced to flee. Finally, Lu Bu wound up serving under and then betrayting Liu Bei and runnign Xu...until Liu Bei and Cao Cao teamed up to retake it. He also spent time under Ding Yuan, Dong Zhuo, Yuan Shao, and Zhang Yang.
* During the battle of chi bi, Cao Cao held You, Ji, Bing, Qing, Yan, Yu, Xu, Si Li, and at least some of Jing (if not most), plus the lords of Liang were his vassals. Sun Quan had Yang, while Liu Qi (and Liu Bei, who served under him) had at least one of Jing's prefectures (Jiangxia) if not the whole prefecture, along with much of Jing's soldiers.
