How to install CentOS5


I have the Live CD version of CentOS5 but there is no shortcut to install it on my HDD like it is with Ubuntu 7 or Fedora 8.

How do I install my CentOS5 to my HDD?

You probably have to download the full iso's instead of the Live CD.

I found the problem...the iso was bad.
Downloaded the first disc form the 1-6 CD from a different location ripped it and it booted fine in my systme with now problems.
I'll be running it in vmware this weekend.

People with bad .iso images on their servers need to fix that trash.
I was thinking that everyone was crazy after attempting to download it 5 separate times with no luck.

After all I went through I would advise people to just pay for it from some vendor for $4.99 or something.

The other thing you can do is check the md5sums of the file to make sure it is the complete file.

Just what I was about to say. MD5SUM. And not just the complete file, but the complete and uncorrupted file.
