    2. I’m always searching for stuff on information that I don’t know about, even though it might be old news. It’s hard to search things that you don’t know of, because what do you search for? ;) This was the type of thing I love to read about on something new to me. Awsome read! Thanks.

    6. under heading: Setup Network Installation Web site name and CentOS directory, screen shot and instructions are wrong (at least for i386)

      In the Cent OS directory field if you add a “/” before the centos/5.5/os/i386 you’ll get an error message that reads: Error setting up mirror.centos.org//centos/5.5/os.i386

      do not add a “/” before centos, this will be handled for you.

      • Hi brian,

        I just tested CentOS 5.5 i386 Netinstallation and used slash / before centos/5.5/os/i386 and It worked as it should work.

        Actually you have here mirror.centos.org//centos/5.5/os.i386 one typo. It should be:
        mirror.centos.org/centos/5.5/os/i386 or mirror.centos.org//centos/5.5/os/i386
        not
        mirror.centos.org//centos/5.5/os.i386

        If you test mirror.centos.org//centos/5.5/os/i386with you browser, it works normally. It’s redirected to mirror.centos.org/centos/5.5/os/i386

        • haha, yeah. i caught that “os.i386” after i posted. wasn’t copy and paste, just a fat finger. none the less when i didn’t put the / in front of centos it worked just fine and when i did it failed. oh well, weird.

          thanks for testing.

          • when installing another copy of centOS i got the same error message as before however this time i was able to figure out why. it seems that if you fat finger the URL the error message simply puts “//” between the first and second line. such as the above error. annoying as i spent my time banging my head trying to figure out why i had 2 slashes instead of opening my eyes and realizing i had a typo. (probably more of a personal issue then an OS issue) however a notation in the instructions might be nice for idiots such as myself.

    7. Thank you. When I saw the image at “Select Packages for Installation” included Desktop-GNOME and Desktop-KDE, I knew I had finally found the procedure I was needing.

      Just ONE question: after rebooting from Desktop install, will the user go to CLI or GUI? Yes, I am able to type startx at the CLI. :)

      I am “comfortable” on the CLI but am NOT a Sys Admin nor Network Admin.

      Thanks again for the procedure.

      • Hi Marti,

        Thanks for the compliments :)

        After rebooting using desktop installation user should go to GUI normally. :)

        • Thank you for the answer. I am anxious to try this distro “flavor” one day.

    13. Hi,
      your network installer for x64 doesn’t work,
      when you specify only IPV4 – regardless of proper fields:
      Web site name: mirror.centos.org
      CentOS directory for x86_64: centos/5.6/os/x86_64
      – or –
      CentOS directory for x86_64: /centos/5.6/os/x86_64
      – always same error, of unable to get the stage2.img.
      After enabling IPV6, works fine – VERY STRANGE.

      • Hi,

        This sounds really strange, but nice to hear that you get it working and this info might also help someone else. Thanks!

      • Having the exact same error. IPV4 only and I use mirrors.centos.org/centos/5.7/os/x86_64

        it doesn’t exist….

        Try it in your web browser. the URL fails.

        “Unable to retrieve … stage2.img” is the error

    14. This was a big help. I was able to use the Fedora livecd creator to burn the Centos netinstall.iso to my thumb drive and then boot my laptop with it. I used this howto to install Centos 5.7 and it worked like a charm. Thanks!
