[Note: when posting replies, please take the time to trim the quoted  
material (using the tag "[snip]" or points of ellipses (like I use  
below) to denote where such trimming has been done).  Bottom posting  
without trimming is more annoying than top-posting.  And, if I can do  
it with Apple Mail on Mac OS X you can do it from your client, too.   
Thank you!]

Hmm, while it's not CentOS you may want to look at how Scientific  
Linux does 'sites' (in their terminology).  As Scientific Linux is  
built from the same source RPMS as CentOS is, much of the 'sites' info  
should be at least somewhat applicable.

(note that that's currently throwing an internal server error; they  
run Plone, and Plone has apparently had an issue).

They key is to not run afoul of the CentOS trademarks, if you use a  
CentOS base (if you use an SL base, their usage guidelines apply, and  
they are different from the CentOS ones I'm sure).  And, as always, I  
reserve the right to be wrong, and Johnny, Karanbir, or other CentOS  
dev is more than welcome to correct me if need be.
