Installing CentOS for studying RHSCA.


I am installing CentOS on my laptop to practice for RHCSA, Iím on the setup screen that ask what type of install. Its default is minimal but Iím assuming I would use Basic Server. If you could help me out with this dilemma, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Just use whatever you want. Minimal is more like a JeOS which (IMHO) has the benefit of having to configure / add everything yourself.

Thanks for response. I am fairly new to Linux and I would just like to be able to study for exam and be able to utilize the functions it ask me to perform in the in the Michael Jang RHCSA/RHCE book. I know RHEL 6 has the desktop and then server and in the book it ask to use RHEL 6 Server which I could not get a copy of since my email was not a business email or school. So I have not access to the 30 day trial, in case someone replies to use RHEL 6 30 day subscription. I'm already installing CentOS and I am wanting to make sure that I install the right installation. Thanks

You need to learn a bit about yum/rpm install tools, so a minimal install is a good idea.

Ok, Thanks UnSpawn and ChrisM. I will do the minimal. I appreciate the advice and I will be more than likely asking some questions again. Good to see there is a Linux community willing to help out a fellow student. Thanks again and go spurs go. lol I'm from San Antonio BTW.
