I am Very new to remote installs and im trying to do this on a dedicated server. with 2 gigs of ram
and all i want to do is do a clean raw install from Centos os rather than OVH's custom stuff that blocks your ability to run vmware and other needed software i have to install
if some one could help me out... i would greatly appreciate it
thx in advance for anyone's help in this mater
