Getting started with the CentOS 4.4 Single Server CD

Wednesday, 21 March 2007, 11:02 AM EST

CentOS, which stands for Community ENTerprise Operating System, is an enterprise-focused Linux distribution built from the freely available sources (under the GPL and similar licenses) from Red Hat. CentOS 4 is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and supports the x86 (i586 and i686), x86_64 (AMD64 and Intel EMT64), IA64, Alpha, and S390 and S390x architectures.

The Single Server CD contains most of the items required for a basic server set up, but without a GUI. It's great for those who want a functional install quickly. Also, since there is no memory-hungry GUI, you can run a basic server with just 128MB of RAM, though of course you will need more if you need to deploy large databases.
