Since I have a four of these units, and the XP recovery CD, I figured,
"ah give it a go."
And going through the Centos wiki, I found a simple piece I was
missing: "linux text askmethod". There were a few problems I had with
the text install:
Disk Druid does not work with LVM partitions, much, in text mode. I was
able to increase the size of the swap partition though...
I missed the setup for a user other than root. I will have to do that
System came up in init 3 mode. Easy to fix.
Video is 800x480. This is a problem for a number of dialog boxes. I
tried to change the video, but nothing happened when I logged out and
back in. still 800x480 (I selected Generic LCD for hardware then 1034 x
768). I read in one set of notes that using xvesa is better than vesa
(which is what is being used now). How do I set that?
Oh, /proc/cpuinfo reports 769 bogomips. Wait, this boot it is 830
