Dan: After you get the server running properly again, you might go to
this URL: <http://www.nsa.gov>
and search for "Guide to the Secure Configuration of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5 Revision 2 December 20, 2007"

it's a .pdf file  you can download. They also have a 2 page pamphlet,
which gives you an overview of how to harden your CentOS 5 server.
