Hi,

I have downloaded CentOS installation files there are 7 parts all around 650mb each, all ISO's. I can not figure how I am meant to burn them in order to boot it for installation.

Do I burn all 7 ISO's onto 1 DVD?

Thanks,
Lighty.

I got mine from there, I am downloading all the ISO files though. Do I only need the live file?

Probably old versions or MD5 sums to check integrity of each download.

If there are multiple ISO files, they usually equate to add on software which comes with the OS.

Most linux distros come with a huge amount of software and alternative localisation files (hence why the preferred method of installation is from a DVD).

Usually, it is sufficient to just install from either the live CD (or an install CD - single 650mb ISO), and install any other software from the web directly.

As CentOS is RedHat based, you would use either individual RPM files, or YUM to install apps directly, although my experience of this is minimal. I'm more of a debian/ubuntu guy :)
