    About CentOS download


    Hi folks,

    CentOS is completely a new to me.

    I'm prepared to install CentOS 4.4 on a AMD64 PC to run it as server. Please advise whether /CentOS/4.4/isos/x86_64/ will be the right ISO image for me to download.

    TIA

    Yes. That is right. There is also a "server" version here.

    Hi Dapper Dan,

    Tks for your advice.

    Regarding the server version - CentOS-4.4.ServerCD-x86_64.iso
    What packages are included there?

    Is X packages included as well which should not be on a server creating a risk hole. However on another hand it will be convenient for me at the early stage of installation to search documents on Internet. Just retain X not started at boot and remove all their packages after installation finished. I don't expect connecting a workstation to the server to do this job at the beginning.

    Advice would be appreciated. TIA

    If you are new to X-less servers, it would probably be a good idea to have X. I've never used the CentOS Server version but I would imagine it comes with X or X can easily be installed via yum. Download it and see. If it doesn't then maybe regular CentOS would be satisfactory.
