    I've never done a CentOS install of any kind, but check this HowTo for instructions that might help.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Edit: check this link too, because it looks like it might explain a bit about the part where you got stuck.

    Hope it helps...

    If you want to install from cds, then download the full installation set. If you want to perform a net install, then choose one of the mirrors here:

    http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/5/isos/i386/

    Do not use that URL; rather, choose one of the URLs there. I believe you'll need the full path (including the trailing i386/).

    i got past the partitioning after an hour of fiddling, now just downloading and install the packages, could take a while.

    Edit: I'm going to cancel the download so i can download the installation dvd to save time in the future if i ever need to reinstall or anything like that.

    ok everything installed and going, now to configuring it so i can run my web server and mysql database so how do i do this? i would expect the os would not make any difference in this part of setting it up?

    Thanks for the link i only just found the same website a while ago but another problem has popped up, i don't know how this has happened but something must have gone wrong, when i started up the server a while ago the login screen comes up all normal but as soon as i log in all it give me is a terminal, firefox, and a clock but nothing else no task bar nothing, i even tried changing the season, i think i may reinstall unless you have a better idea.

    I would recommend Debian for the server you want to put together.

    Performing security updates on a production server is always nerve-racking and Debian is the excellent in a serious production environment.

    Ubuntu server (a more user-friendly version of Debian) is also a good choice on production servers.
