Okay so I've decided to use CentOS as my first ever linux installation. I have a mac mini and would like to install CentOS on a partition and dual boot. I downloaded both DVD1 and DVD2 however... [by phaseshift]
I downloaded and installed CentOS 6.1 on an old laptop, 2.0-GHz Celeron mobile, 1GB RAM, 120GB HD, using CentOS-6.1-i386-bin-DVD1 and CentOS-6.1-i386-bin-DVD2. The installation ran and finished without a problem. When I was asked to reboot after installation I did. During the installation I chose to customize and in the Desktop package, I selected Desktop with a foot to its left.
