I just skimed through reading it. I would like to know if you can do
this install on CentOS 5.1 pulling all the packages from the centos yum
repos? Watch out that install of Python2.4.5. A user may have both
versions installed at once.  /usrbin/python2.4.4
and /usr/bin/python2.4.5 sudo make altinstall?? I assume we are not
breaking original apps?

Not for the beginner at heart. Can you do it all from Originality?
Instead of following another article?
