For Release:  January 21, 2005

The CentOS Team is pleased to announce the official release of a new
single CD Server version of CentOS 3.4 for i386.

This single CD iso should be ideal for use in datacentres for installing
servers and it has also been designed for covermount magazine use.

This version includes all of the packages that can be chosen to be
installed during a 'Server' install.

Once installed yum can be used to install additional packages from
mirrors and yum groupinstall can be used to install additional package

This release includes all relevant RHEL 3 updates (for U4) and errata up
to January 20th, 2005.  

A new ISO image is available from mirrors and is also available via

Downloading -- Bittorrent

The bittorent for the CD is found at :-


Please use bittorrent and keep your downloader running for others to use
even after the download completes.

If you need to install bittorrent for CentOS, rpms are available from
Dag's repository. 


An earlier version of bittorrent is also available in the CentOS 3.3
<contrib> repo - which may be installed using 'yum install bittorrent' -
a gui version is also available - 'yum install bittorrent-gui'

Then execute btdownloadcurses.py <url to .torrent file> in a shell. (or
btdownloadgui.py for the gui)   You may need to open ports 6881-6889 and
6969 if you have tight firewall restrictions.

The .torrent files are also available on all caosity mirrors.

Once again - please leave your downloader running after the download is
complete (with ports 6881-6889 open) as your downloader will become part
of the peer to peer bittorrent network and reduce the load on our mirror
