I do both.  The easiest way, hands down, is the packages.  Just 'yum
install blah', start up the services and you should be good to go.

If you're new to CentOS and linux in general, the single most important
tip I can give you is:  look at your logs, they tell you everything!

Also, if you want the most out of these lists, then you should describe
your problem with specific details and refrain from using general
statements like, "I am having problems...".  The only way we can help is
if you tell us what's wrong.
