Quick comments on CentOS 5

I have installed CentOS 5 on three machines so far; here are some notes:
  • all three machines needed the boot time linux resolution:1024x768 to get a usable display on the anaconda installer and lvm is not available if you install in text mode
  • it took four hours to get a workable desktop install (including updates, not including additional software)
  • on an IBM Thinkcentre I've had to disable then enable the network interface each time to get Internet connectivity
  • the Gnome desktop looks nice, a little cleaner than Ubuntu (I like the blue and themeset)
